Functional Areas Diagram I. Motor Areas (posterior part of the frontal lobes) Primary motor cortex - precentral gyrus in the frontal lobe La.

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.

Luigi Rolando (1773-1831). Italian anatomist known for his pioneer research in brain localization of function. A range of neuroanatomical and neurological entities are named after him: the Rolandic vein, the Rolandic artery (central sulcal artery), the pre-Rolandic artery (precentral sulcal artery), the Rolandic operculum (post-central operculum), the Rolandic area (primary motor cortex), the substantia gelatinosa of Rolando, the fissure of Rolando (central sulcus) and Rolandic epilepsy.

Luigi Rolando June Turin - 20 April was an Italian anatomist known for his pioneer research in brain localization of function. The central sulcus (of Rolando) separates primary motor from primary somatosensory cortex.

Almost all of behavior involves motor function, from talking to gesturing to walking. But even a simple movement like reaching out to pick up a glass of water can be a complex motor task to study. Learn how the brain can process these movements.

The Anatomy of Movement - How the brain translates movement in the body and other information needed to make a movement. A good layman's read to understand how the body/mind connection works

"A new model that says motor neurons send basic rhythmic patterns, not specific information, down the spine to drive movement.  'The brain has had an evolutionary goal to drive movements that help us survive. The primary motor cortex is key to these functions. The patterns of activity it displays presumably derive from evolutionarily older rhythmic motions such as swimming and walking. Rhythm is a basic building block of movement,' explained Churchland."

A different drummer: Stanford engineers discover neural rhythms drive physical movement

In a significant departure from earlier models, neural engineers and neuroscientists working at Stanford University have developed a new model for the brain

Cortices of the Brain. Primary Motor Cortex

Let's talk about the most amazing organ in the most complex organism on the planet, shall we? :) Here is a basic orientation: Brain.

Eccentric training tends to cause eccentric-specific strength gains, which have historically been attributed to largely spinal mechanisms.  However, new research is showing that motor learning may contribute quite substantially. Although cortical activation is higher during eccentric contractions, functional connectivity between the primary motor cortex and other brain areas is lower. -------------------- #sandcresearch #strengthandconditioning #strengthtraining #strength #sportsscience…
