Primary motor cortex on the right side of the brain regulates left-side movements, and that on the left side controls right-side movements.
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging scans, the researchers determined that the illusion of movement in an unstimulated hand was accompanied by a characteristic elevation of blood flow in primary motor cortex in the hemisphere that controls movement in that hand.
Likewise, constant practice volunteers who received magnetic stimulation in the primary motor cortex failed to retain the arm movement as well as volunteers in the same group who did not receive magnetic stimulation.
It is known that brain's primary motor cortex and the body's low-level peripheral stretch sensors encode information about the position and velocity of limb motion.
Leonardo Cohen, of NINDS Human Cortical Physiology and Stroke Neurorehabilitation Section, revealed that his team directed tDCS to the primary motor cortex, the part of the brain that controls movement.
The brain's primary motor cortex has been found to have neighbouring "old" and "new" parts.
professor in the department of neurobiology at the School of Medicine and senior career scientist at the VA Medical Center said that the majority of animals, including cats, rats and some monkeys, the old primary motor cortex controls movement indirectly through the circuitry of the spinal cord.
