Controlling actions must be done ahead of time because events precede the feedback signals about them. The only way to overcome this problem is to anticipate what is going to happen next and use that information to regulate the ones actions. There are at least 3 types of rules that need to be mastered in order to accomplish this. First, those that regulate physical reality like the laws of nature. Secondly, those that regulate their own body movements. The muscles of the body interact in very complex ways in the execution of goal directed actions and subjects must be in control of these rules. Thirdly, the rules that regulate the interaction between individuals must be mastered. It is about understanding the social signals that inform about other people's emotions and intentions. In the present article, the development of predictive control is discussed in this context and how infants get to anticipate what is going to happen next.
