Redrawing the brain’s motor map Neuroscientists at Emory have refined a map showing which parts of the brain are activated during head rotation, resolving a decades-old puzzle. Their findings may help.

Primary sensory, primary olfactory and primary visual cortices. Association areas, multimodal association areas, motor areas and lateralization of corticol functioning.

THE MOTOR CORTEX-from "The Brain from Top to Bottom". Pinned by SOS Inc. Different parts of the motor cortex help us move different parts of the body. Notice the disproportionate amount of space devoted to the face, tongue, and hands.

"This model shows what a man's body would look like if each part grew in proportion to the area of the cortex of the brain concerned with its movement."

Motor homunculus: "This model shows what a man's body would look like if each part grew in proportion to the area of the cortex of the brain concerned with its movement.

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 Sensory Homunculus Man in the Parietal Lobes of the Brain "This model shows what a man's body would look like if each part grew in proportion to the area of the cortex of the brain concerned with its sensory perception.

Many people will be familiar with this rather strange image: It’s a depiction of the motor homunculus, which is essentially a “map” of the body located in the brain. The image shows how different spots of the primary motor cortex control different parts of the body. So, for instance, the spot I’ve highlighted in red …
