In human movement systems, coordination refers to the process by which components or degrees of freedom are assembled and brought into functional relationship with each other during goal-directed behavior [1]. There are two other important dimensions to coordination which need to be understood in neurobiology. First, a functional coordination pattern assembled by an individual to complete a performance goal needs to be organized with respect to important sources of information from the environmental such as objects, other individuals, surfaces, and events. Additionally, groups of performers functioning in a team game need to coordinate their actions with respect to each other as well as key task constraints such as rules, performance area dimensions, and equipment. This process involves coordination between agents in a social neurobiological system [2].
