Neurofilament protein distribution in the macaque monkey dorsolateral premotor cortex

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

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.

Anatomo‐functional organization of the ventral primary motor and premotor cortex in the macaque monkey

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

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

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.

Functional neuroanatomy of the primate isocortical motor system

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

Projections from the superior temporal sulcus to the agranular frontal cortex in the macaque

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

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

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.

Organization of the face representation in macaque motor cortex

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.

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.

The supplementary motor area of the cerebral cortex; a clinical and experimental study.

An analysis of observations on the properties of the superior and mesial intermediate precentral cortex in man and the patterns of focal seizures due to discharge in the area are presented, and an attempt is made to interpret the findings in terms of function.
