Lateral view of the cerebral cortex showing the principal gyri and sulci. Major structures include the central sulcus and the precentral (primary motor), premotor, and postcentral (primary somatosensory) gyri. Also note the gyri situated rostral to the premotor cortex, including the orbital gyri, which mediate higher order intellectual functions and contribute to the regulation of emotional behavior. Brocas motor speech area and Wernickes area (for reception of speech) are important areas…

Lateral view of the cerebral cortex showing the principal gyri and sulci. -- This site has some really excellent, clean neuroscience diagrams.

The researchers found that girls, but not boys, with ADHD showed overall reductions in total prefrontal cortex surface area, the part of the brain responsible for multi-tasking, decision-making and completing complex tasks. In contrast, boys showed overall reductions in total motor and premotor cortex surface area, the part of the brain responsible for selecting and coordinating motor skills. This difference correlates directly with the ADHD behavioral symptoms boys and girls tend to…

BALTIMORE, MD – Researchers at the Kennedy Krieger Institute recently announced study results showing the influence of gender on the brain development and function of children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Premotor cortex

Minds mirror one another.— the appropriate unit of analysis for psychological science may be two or more persons in relation to one another

THE MOTOR CORTEX	 		THE BASAL GANGLIA		THE CEREBELLUM		THE ACTIVATION SEQUENCE FOR THE MOTOR AREAS So many different structures in the brain are involved in motor functions that some people even say that practically the entire brain contributes to body movements. Though the motor cortex is usually associated with Areas 4 and 6, the control of voluntary movements actually involves almost all areas of the neocortex.

the brain orchestrates movement in a beautiful way

landmarks: primary motor cortex (precentral gyrus), premotor cortex (including Broca's area in LH), prefrontal cortex

Working memory at work. The area around the dorsal anterior premotor cortex registered activity in MRI scans as subjects underwent experiments designed to test how the brain selects from working memory.

Researchers studying brains want to know what's happening in an area called the premotor cortex — the place in the brain that gears up for something the body is about to do, like swimming.
