The literature on premotoneuronal and direct corticomotoneuronal (CM) control in the cat and macaque monkey is reviewed. The available experimental findings are not in accordance with a recently proposed hypothesis that direct CM connections have "replaced" the premotoneuronal pathways. Instead, we propose that premotoneuronal CM control plays an important role in motor control also in primates and that the direct CM connection has been added during phylogeny.
