The morphology and the spatial arrangement of neurons in the primary motor cortex (area 4) of the adult human brain have been investigated by the Golgi method. The human motor cortex displays a great variety of pyramidal and nonpyramidal cells, expressed as important differences in soma shape and size, and in the dimensions and the distribution of dendritic trees, which are described in detail. The neuronal composition of each layer and the white matter is analyzed. In sublayers III b and c… CONTINUE READING
