MOTOR BEHAVIOR, MOTOR-FUNCTION HOMUNCULUS

first proposed by Canadian neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield (1891 - 1976) which maps the whole motor cortex, reflecting the complexity of the tasks completed in that part of the brain.

MOTOR BEHAVIOR, MOTOR-FUNCTION HOMUNCULUS: "Thanks to the mapping of the cranial regions, we now know (fairly recently) that motor behaviour is due to the motor cortex."
