The mesial agranular frontal cortex that lies rostral to area 4 (F1) is formed by two distinct cytoarchitectonic areas: F3, located caudally, and F6, located rostrally. In the present experiments we investigated the organization of F3 and F6 by observing the motor responses evoked by their intracortical electrical microstimulation. Our main purpose was to find out whether the cytoarchitectonic subdivision of the mesial agranular frontal cortex into two areas has a physiological counterpart.

The ipsilateral cortical connections of the different cytorchitectonic subdivisions of area 6 (areas 6aα, 6aβ, 6 aγ, and 6iffu) were studied by the use of fluorescent retrograde tracers.

Results show that FR contains an isolated motor representation of the forelimb that can be differentiated from PMv based on current thresholds and latencies to evoke electromyographic activity using intracortical microstimulation techniques.

Interconnections between the prefrontal cortex and the premotor areas in the frontal lobe

Interconnections between a portion of the prefrontal cortex and the premotor areas in the frontal lobe are examined to provide insights into the routes by which the cortex gains access to the primary motor cortex andThe central control of movement.

Neuronal Activity in the Supplementary, Presupplementary, and Premotor Cortex of Monkey

It is made a point that the neuronal activity in the three areas (the SMA, pre-SMA and PM) is different in association with sequential performance of multiple movements.

Functional representation on the medial aspect of the frontal lobes in man.

Speech impairment from stimulation of the supplementary motor area showed striking similarities with that obtained from stimulation in the frontostriatal region or lateral aspect of the frontal lobe, supporting the hypothesis that interference with striatal function may be the basis of speech inhibition produced by stimulation ofThe frontal lobe.

Afferent and efferent projections of the inferior area 6 in the macaque monkey

This study traced the afferent and efferent connections of the inferior region of area 6 by injecting small amounts of wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to horseradish peroxidase and fluorescent tracers into restricted parts of inferior area 6 and in physiologically determined fields of area 4.

The first motor cortex of the rat was identified as the region from which movements could be evoked by the lowest intensity of electrical stimulation and was correlated with Cytoarchitecture in the frontal and parietal cortex.

The hindlimb representation of MII and the tail representation of MI appear to be considerably further rostral than depicted in the classical maps, which serves to resolve a discrepancy between the classical physiological and cytoarchitectonic maps for this region of cortex.
