Lateral view of the cerebral cortex showing the principal gyri and sulci. -- This site has some really excellent, clean neuroscience diagrams.
The ventral anterior nucleus (VA) is a nucleus of the thalamus. It acts with the anterior part of the ventral lateral nucleus to modify signals from the basal ganglia.The ventral anterior nucleus receives neuronal inputs from the basal ganglia. Its main afferent fibres are from the globus pallidus. The efferent fibres from this nucleus pass into the premotor cortex for initiation and planning of movement.
BALTIMORE, MD – Researchers at the Kennedy Krieger Institute recently announced study results showing the influence of gender on the brain development and function of children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Brain study: Motor cortex contributes to word comprehension
Working memory at work. The area around the dorsal anterior premotor cortex registered activity in MRI scans as subjects underwent experiments designed to test how the brain selects from working memory.
The intraparietal sulcus is an area of the brain behind the motor cortex, and in front of the visual cortex, it is responsible for visual-motor integration. The Dorsal premotor cortex is responsible for planning of complex actions.
