Recent anatomical evidence from nonhuman primates indicates that cingulate motor areas (CMAs) play a substantial role in the cortical control of upper facial movement. Using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging in 10 healthy subjects, we examined brain activity associated with volitional eye closure involving primarily the bilateral orbicularis oculi. The findings were compared with those from bimanual tapping, which should identify medial frontal areas nonsomatotopically or… CONTINUE READING
