Muscle coordination may be impossible to predict accurately based on biomechanical considerations alone because of redundancy in the musculoskeletal system. Here, we present a review of recent work demonstrating that muscle activation patterns may reflect a hierarchical and low-dimensional structure of neuromotor outputs that reflect control of task-level goals. Understanding the goals and organization of the neural control of movement may provide useful reduced dimension parameter sets to address the degrees-of-freedom problem in musculoskeletal movement control.
