Definition


Coordination is the ability to control the contraction of different muscles in the body to generate movements made for a specific purpose. It enables gestures to be performed with efficiency and accuracy. Coordination is acquired at an early age and is refined throughout life. Coordination is not fixed, it can improve or deteriorate. Therefore, a neurological disease can affect the functions of coordination, especially when the cerebellum is affected, responsible for a cerebellar syndrome.
