@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaNMA -> BrainRegionNMA_NC_PMC_F7

This page covers biological details of component Dorsal Rostral Premotor Cortex. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Cerebral Cortex -> Anterior Lobe (NC.LOBE.ANT) -> Premotor Cortex (NC.PMC) -> Dorsal Premotor Cortex (MCA.NC.DPMC) -> Dorsal Rostral Premotor Cortex (NMA.NC.PMC.F7) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: cortex
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Neocortical Brain - Motor Aggregation Area (NMA)
  • Area circuit: Extensor Motor (XTM)
  • Brodmann ID: 06
  • Role: cortex.motor.extensor
  • Function: Associate arbitrary sensory stimuli with specific eye movements
  • Notes to function:
    • 6DR
    • Can evoke eye movements
    • strong afferents from DLPFC
    • convey inputs to caudal concerning motivation, long term plans, memory of past actions
    • integrates sensory and internally driven inputs for planning of goal-directed actions
