Introduce the organisation of the motor control system, and bidirectional connections ranging from
the spinal cord to the motor cortex, including the positions of the primary motor cortex in this
– Discuss evidence for the structural organisation of the primary motor cortex, particular how
different body parts are mapped in M1
– Discuss, using specific examples, how non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, such as TMS, can
provide information about the cortical organisation of M1
– Review the evidence for the role of the primary motor cortex in motor controlEvaluate the role of the primary motor (M1) cortex in action.
