22+ Brain Diagram Motor Cortex Gif. The primary motor cortex (brodmann area 4) is a brain region that in humans is located in the dorsal portion of the frontal lobe. All of the body's voluntary movements are controlled by the brain.
Anatomy and function of the brain. The gross anatomy of the brain is shown from a lateral (a) and medial (b) view. In panel (a) labels illustrate some of the areas of localized function including primary motor cortex on the precentral gyrus (m1).
Special senses include vision, hearing, equilibrium, and taste and smell.
The medial and superior portions control the muscles of the. Other parts of the brain, such as the basal ganglia and cerebellum. A simplified schematic shows how signals from nerve cells in the brain's motor cortex can control a prosthetic device. Along with other brain regions, the motor cortex via the hippocampus, directs the body's physical.
