Watch elisp functions as they are executed in emacs

Is it possible to "watch" elisp commands as they are executed in an emacs session? For example, if I send "C-x C-f filePath", emacs runs the command "find-file filePath". How do I see the the commands, along with their arguments, that get run under an emacs session?

You are not posting in the correct section of the forum.
Post in the emacs lisp section, you will get more answers.

Also try to be a bit more specific in your queries.
What do you mean by "see" or "watch" commands ?

If you want to display the documentation of a command, use the shortcut C-h f
followed by the name of the command. If you want to know what command is
bound to a shortcut, use C-h k then enter the shortcut. If you are interested in
what has happened so far, just look at the contents of the *Messages* buffer (C-x b RET *Messages* RET).
If you want to list in a buffer all the commands typed so far, use M-x list-command-history.

Thank you, that was exactly what I was looking for.
