Individuated finger movements of the human hand require selective activation of particular sets of muscles. Such selective activation is controlled primarily by the motor cortex via the corticospinal tract. Is this selectivity therefore lost when lesions damage the corticospinal tract? Or when the motor cortex reorganizes after amputation?
