14 [In terms of the Kuhnian view of scientific development it is worth noting that Schmidt was in something of a unique position to reconcile both central and peripheral control positions. As a student of both Adams and Henry he had exposure to both perspectives but without a substantial commitment of time, energy or emotion into either of the competing paradigms]. Schema theory is based on the notion that task-specific experience results in the abstraction of the essential ‘rules’ specifying the relationship between the specific efferent commands (response specifications),environmental conditions, afferent information (in the form of sensory consequences), and movement outcome.

The Case Against Reconciliation and the Prospect of Protracted Debate Although the case for reconciliation of the two competing paradigms is superficially attractive, there are reasons to doubt whether a hybrid view would ever attract sufficient support from the adherents of either of the existing paradigms to form the basis of a new normal science. In particular it needs to be re-emphasis4 that, unlike earlier debates in the motor control and learning field which have, to some extent, been satisfactorily resolved through hybridisation, the current debate has all the characteristics of a true paradigm crisis.
