Abstract

The movement-cognitive development paradigm is often in an equivocal way. On the other the famous Latin idiom by Giovenale "mens sana in corpore sano", speaks clearly: only he who has a "sound" body can consider himself to have a mind as sound. But are we sure of this assertion, or should we reconsider it? Are motricity and cognitive development really so closely linked? The article attemps to make a contribution in this sense through, among others, the contribution of the TSGM theory of Nobel prize winner D. Edelman.
