Increased functional connectivity between ipsilesional primary motor region and cerebellum persisted during the 6 months from onset in stroke patients [43].
In Response to Treatment, Improvement in Spasticity Is Associated with Greater Task-Related Brain Activation in the Contralesional Primary Motor Region and Contralesional Lateral Premotor Cortex.
The motor region associated with the patient's right hand (red) lies immediately supero-lateral to the tumour.
The RORα neurons in turn connect with neurons in the motor region of brain, suggesting they might serve as a critical link between the brain and the feet.
The changes happened in the left temporal cortex, an area of the brain associated with language receptivity, as well as the primary sensory motor region of the brain.
In students who had to put more effort into their learning, greater growth was seen in an area of the motor region of the cerebral cortex (middle frontal gyrus).
The result showed the facial motor region was invaded by the neighboured tongue motor area bilaterally.
Pigment epithelium derived factor (PEDF) has emerged as a potential candidate to promote behavioral gain and neurorestorative events in the spinal cord injury because PEDF receptor is concentrated in ventral motor region of the spinal cord and the molecule is highly expressed and it is able to trigger trophic actions to motor neurons [1, 2].
There was no difference in brain activity in the motor region when participants simply watched still videos of the people they liked or disliked.
[15], repeatedly pairs a peripheral electrical stimulus with a later cortical (TMS) stimulus delivered to the contralateral motor region. The change in cortical excitability induced with PAS is believed to represent associative plasticity induced in motor cortex [15, 29].
"It has already been established that when we perceive -- hear or read -- words referring to actions such as jump, grasp and chew, this activates motor regions of the brain in the frontal lobe," said Dr Shebani.
