ABSTRACT. Motor neuroscience is well over 100 years old, with
seminal work such as G. T. Fritz and E. Hitzig's discovery of motor
cortex occurring in 1870. Theoretical motor neuroscience has been
ongoing for at least the last 50 years. How mature a scientific disci-
pline is motor neuroscience? Are experimentalists and theoreticians
working together productively to help the field progress? This ar-
ticle addresses these questions by advancing the following theses.
Motor neuroscience remains at a descriptive stage due to the incred-
