Quick Reference

Part of the brain concerned with conscious control of skeletal movements. The primary motor cortex is located in the precentral gyrus of the cerebral cortex and contains pyramidal tracts of axons connecting the brain and spinal cord. Specific areas of cortical tissue control particular muscles.
