By itself, the motor cortex would create a very gross and simplistic movement pattern in muscles on the opposite side of the body. It needs the help of some other very complex brain centers to produce smooth, coordinated, and functional movements. Even putting one’s burned finger in one’s mouth requires a modest amount of skill and coordination.

Parkinson’s patients have a unique difficulty getting up out of a chair, not because of weakness, but because the initiation of an intentional movement is so inhibited. If you test the actual strength of those muscles, they’re fairly normal. The ultimate progression of Parkinson’s is a patient literally frozen in place.
