How to use "Motility" in context?

Motility refers to the ability of an organism to move. This movement can be directed by the muscles or the nervous system. Many organisms move in order to find food or to avoid danger.

The muscles that enable movement are designed to produce a coordinated force that results in a particular motion. The nervous system coordinates the muscles by sending signals that tell them when to contract and when to release the energy. This coordination is crucial for movement. If one muscle is working harder than the others, it can cause the overall motion to be chaotic and unproductive.

Movement is also determined by the environment in which an organism lives.
