  • I've begun some cleanup with a new introduction but more is definitely needed. I think the best way forward is to make this a general overview linking to more detailed articles on each of the motor cortex areas. Dryman 23:04, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
  • 'experimented with removing parts of epileptic's brains without them noticing'... I think this statement needs to be explained a little more fully! 163.1.143.122 01:38, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

A picture of where the motor cortex is located would be nice

I see that a "banner" has requested this. This would be a nice addition. (Sorry, but I'm not a brain scholar so I can't be of help to improve the page, not without a lot of "scholarship" ) -- In fact, I'm at this page to find out where the motor cortex is located in xyz).

Why does it say there are 5 ares of the motor cortex but it only lists 4?

  • The somatotropic organization on the image is wrong! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.10.63.101 (talk) 14:40, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Evolutionary aspects

This part is a translation of the corresponding German wikipedia article. --Bandadas (talk) 14:28, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Wikilinks

Just a reminder, that there only needs to be one wikilink referencing an article from this page, every mention of this thing/person/place doesn't need to be another link. One time is enough. -Iamozy (talk) 14:06, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Motor cortex vs. Primary motor cortex?

It seems that this article begins by stating that the primary motor cortex is a subdivision of the motor cortex. But then throughout the article the discussion predominantly concerns primary motor cortex. I think this type of information should be moved to the primary motor cortex page. Also, the picture is misleading because it is also only the primary motor cortex that is pictured. SMA and premotor areas are not diagrammed.

Then that leaves the question: what is the purpose of this page?

Section on PMC coding moved to Primary motor cortex. Better image uploaded. --Iamozy (talk) 13:56, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
