The laminar pattern of cytochrome oxidase activity was studied in the agranular frontal cortex (area 4-6 complex) of the macaque monkey. The cortex, stained with this method, showed 6 stripes of different enzymatic activity. On the basis of their characteristics and of the presence of highly active cells, the agranular frontal cortex could be parcellated in 5 areas (F1-F5). F1 very likely corresponds to area FA of von Bonin and Bailey. Rostral to F1 two large regions could be distinguished, one… 
Neurofilament protein distribution in the macaque monkey dorsolateral premotor cortex
TLDR
Regional and laminar distribution patterns of neurofilament proteins in the dorsolateral premotor cortex of macaque monkeys were studied with monoclonal antibody SMI‐32 to reveal whether the increasing functional diversity of the PMd is reflected on a structural level by differences in the neurochemical phenotype.
Distribution of cat‐301 immunoreactivity in the frontal and parietal lobes of the macaque monkey
TLDR
The distribution of the monoclonal antibody Cat‐301 was examined in the frontal and parietal cortex of macaque monkeys and was uniform within cytoarchitecturally defined areas (or subareas) but varied between them.
The fronto-parietal cortex of the prosimian Galago: Patterns of cytochrome oxidase activity and motor maps
TLDR
The motor areas of the prosimian Galago crassicaudatus are mapped using intracortical electrical microstimulation and morphological and histochemical techniques and the possible homologies between the motor and somatic Areas of the galago and monkey as well as their role in movement control are discussed.
Anatomo‐functional organization of the ventral primary motor and premotor cortex in the macaque monkey
TLDR
The posterior areas F4 and F1 appear to be involved in organizing and controlling goal‐directed mouth motor acts and simple movements within different parts of the external (dorsal sector) and internal (ventral sector) space, whereas area F5 code motor acts at a more abstract level, thus enabling the emergence of higher order socio‐cognitive functions.
Superior area 6 afferents from the superior parietal lobule in the macaque monkey
TLDR
At least three separate parietofrontal circuits link the superior parietal lobule with the superior area 6 of the macaque monkey frontal cortex, and it is proposed that the PEc/PEip‐F2 dimple region circuit is involved in controlling movements on the basis of somatosensory information.
Parcellation of the lateral premotor cortex of the macaque monkey based on staining with the neurofilament antibody SMI-32
TLDR
The border between M1 and PM was easily distinguished at the level of the dorsal PM by a strong loss of immunoreactive pyramidal cells in layers III and V, and the border was set using the pattern of layer III immunoreactivity.
Corticocortical inputs to the dorsal and ventral aspects of the premotor cortex of macaque monkeys

TLDR
It appears that the differences in the corticocortical inputs contribute to specialization of the PMd and PMv for their differential roles in motor control.
Functional neuroanatomy of the primate isocortical motor system
TLDR
An overview of the structure and function of the isocortical part of the motor cortex in the macaque and human brain is given and it is revealed that functional gradients can be discerned within the human non-primary motor cortex.
Cortico-cortical connections of areas 44 and 45B in the macaque monkey
TLDR
The results have provided a clarification of the relative connections of areas 44 and 45B of the ventrolateral frontal region which, in the human brain, subserves certain aspects of language processing.
Projections from the superior temporal sulcus to the agranular frontal cortex in the macaque
TLDR
The results showed that two rostral premotor areas, F6 and SEF, and the ventrorostral part of area F2 (F2vr) are targets of projections from the upper bank of the STS (uSTS).

Projections to the frontal cortex from the posterior parietal region in the rhesus monkey
The projections to the frontal cortex from the various subdivisions of the posterior parietal region in the rhesus monkey were studied by means of autoradiographic technique. The rostral superior
Quantitative light and electron microscopic analysis of cytochrome oxidase‐rich zones in the striate cortex of the squirrel monkey
TLDR
There was an increase in mitochondrial reactivity in both asymmetrical and symmetrical synapses in the puff areas; however, the increased reactivity within asymmetrical terminals was significantly greater than that within symmetrical ones.
Regular patchy distribution of cytochrome oxidase staining in primary visual cortex of macaque monkey
TLDR
It is found that the patches were arranged in rows spaced about 350 µm apart, and when one eye was injected with tritiated proline the rows of patches in layers II and III lay in register with the ocular-dominance bands seen autoradiographically in layer IVc.
Histochemical localization of cytochrome oxidase in the hippocampus: Correlation with specific neuronal types and afferent pathways
TLDR
The results demonstrated that not only can soma and dendrites of the same cell have disparate but distinct levels of cytochrome oxidase activity, but the pattern of reactivity within a neuron's apical and basal dendrite can be quite different.
Further observations on corticofrontal connections in the rhesus monkey
TLDR
The frontal lobe connections of the post-Rolandic sensory association areas are investigated and it was found that the caudalmost portion of area 7 has a distinct projection pattern, connecting with the dorsal prearcuate cortex--areas 8B and 46.
Endogenous peroxidatic activity in brain stem neurons as demonstrated by their staining with diaminobenzidine in normal squirrel monkeys
TLDR
It was postulated that a higher concentration of the reactive agents was characteristic of certain neuronal types in the brain stem of the squirrel monkeys, and could be related to the cells' functional needs, energy requirements and perhaps to the metabolism of their specific neurotransmitters.
Frontal lobe inputs to primate motor cortex: evidence for four somatotopically organized ‘premotor’ areas
TLDR
The present experiments sought to define more clearly the origin of frontal lobe inputs to the face, arm and leg areas of the primate motor cortex (area 4) and the distribution of labeled neurons in arhesus monkey with multiple injections of HRP in the arm area of the motor cortex.
Organization of the face representation in macaque motor cortex
TLDR
The face representation in precentral motor cortex in macaque monkeys was stimulated with microelectrodes with the most commonly evoked muscle response in zygomaticus, which retracts the corners of the mouth in expressions of fear and anger.
Afferent properties of periarcuate neurons in macaque monkeys. II. Visual responses
TLDR
It is argued that neurons with a receptive field consisting of several responding areas, some in one sensory modality and some in another, have a praxic function and that they are involved in organizing sequences of movements.

TLDR
The results suggest that a system involved in the processing of color information, especially color-spatial interactions, runs parallel to and separate from the orientation-specific system.
