These processes together are often referred to as working memory. Once a decision has been taken of what action to make, the CNS has to organize the movement (Efferent Organization). The information, concerning movement organization, is sent from the CNS to the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), so that the movement can take place. Once we start to move, we 16 SKILL, ABILITY AND PERFORMANCE begin to process feedback. Feedback can be information about the nature of our movements. 4, this is depicted by the bottom feedback arrow.

In order to perceive the relevant affordances, the person must act upon the environment. He/she must actively search the environment, using afferent (sensory) and efferent (motor) nerves.

This is known as selective attention. The Information Processing theorists place great importance on the role of memory to aid perception and particularly selective attention. , it is dependent on our interpretation of the incoming information.
