Nerves, muscles, hand-eye coordination
Why is hand-eye coordination important?
Hand-eye coordination is important as it helps us in most of our daily activities, from making coffee towriting, driving, sports activities and even playing computer games. The information seen by the eye is sent to the brain which will then process this information and send signals through our nerves to the muscles in our hand, to respond accordingly.
Hand eye coordination in children
Hand-eye coordination starts to develop in children from infancy through their middle childhood.
