The area of the brain that controls voluntary movement.
the cortical area that influences motor movements
The motor cortex is the region of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for initiating nerve impulses that enable organisms to voluntarily move the muscles of the body. It is possible to map out the cortex to show which of its areas is responsible for which particular part of the body.
The area of cortex (just anterior to the central sulcus) that is most directly involved in the implementation of movement. Also called M1.
part of the surface of the cerebrum that controls muscle movements
The region of the cortex close to the parietal lobes concerned with voluntary muscle movement.
the area of the frontal lobes that controls specific voluntary body movements. (84)
The part of the cerebral cortex that creates the commands that make the muscles move.
Sends instructions to muscles to cause voluntary movements
The area of the brain containing the neurons that control voluntary movement (as opposed to reflexes).
the part of both frontal lobes of the brain that controls voluntary muscle movements.
A region of the cortex that carries out the initial processing of motor information in the brain; involved in the control of movement.
Motor cortex is a term that describes regions of the cerebral cortex involved in the planning, control, and execution of voluntary motor functions.
