Many behavioral syndromes have been attributed to this area of the brain. , 2013: 111). Today, it is considered a response to stress and can be observed in any frail individual, including older persons with fragile bodily systems. The GAS response is paradoxical to the anticipated response. Under stress, an individual generally has a sympathetic response, with an increase in heart rate and blood pressure and a fight– flight reaction.

The areas typically considered to be part of the motor system are the premotor and motor areas of the frontal lobes, basal ganglia, cerebellum, brainstem, spinal cord and all the interneurons that link these systems. , 2012). The sensory areas guide and alter existing motor programs. Where the motor system begins and ends is not clear because there are so many interdependent systems that loop between one area and another. Therefore, a linear analysis is not appropriate. There is not one specific area that controls motor output, yet certain nuclear masses are responsible for specific aspects of motor function.
