In the first part of this chapter we review the schema theory of motor control (Schmidt 1975). We emphasize its two main components, generalized motor programs (GMP) and parameterization. Accumulated evidence suggests the independence of GMP and parameterization. However, there is no consensus whether or not they proceed in a fixed order with the assembly of GMPs first, followed by parameterization. These questions could be studied in more detail by using event-related brain potentials. We review this approach in the second part.
