2. The reflex theory of motor control cannot account for which characteristic of human movement uniqueness 3. Open-loop motor control relies on sensory feedback to guide the completion of the movement.
False

4. One weakness of the reflex theory of motor control is that: it cannot explain how humans can perform unique movements

5. Degrees of freedom can be defined as: any of a limited number of ways in which a body may move or in which a dynamic system may change
