which a good deal of coordination among coordinative structures can be maintained "for free," as it were, without burdening an executive system. In short, entrainment as a property of neuromuscular systems would help to resolve the puzzle of Bernstein, identified at the outset of this chapter.


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

The writing of this chapter was supported in part by the following grants awarded to the Haskins Laboratories: NICHD Grant HD-01994, NIH Grant NS-13870 and NIH Grant NS-13617. The figures were done gratis by Claudia Carello, to whom the authors are most grateful.
