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…

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).

The regions of the cerebral cortex that give rise to the corticospinal tract. MI = primary motor cortex; PMC = premotor cortex; PPC = posterior parietal cortex; SI = primary somatosensory receiving area; SMA = supplementary motor area. Note that the PPC does not contribute to the corticospinal tract but does modulate its activity.
