    I wonder if sufficient distinction is made between reflex and ideomotoric responses.

    The example given in the exerpt of someone jumping back from the strike of a snake confined behind reinforced glass is probably hardwired in our genes.

    Toddlers will sometimes dance to music after they have heard a few bars, this IMO is an ideomotoric response.

    As a rather slow defensive fencer, I made use of both pathways in my opponents in order to get the hit.

      I learned the term "reflexive effect" from John Mennell personally and came to understand it as all that was not mechanical in response to manual handling.

      Ideomotion came, mainly, from sources years later, referenced here and here.

      Adam has added something important here, and I look forward to reading it later today.

        By all means, talk to the appropriate departments, but speak to them of movement, authenticity and understanding of painful and potentially painful processes and their affect on movement.
