What are the functions of the premotor cortex? Active for choosing movements from its movement lexicon, contains mirror neurons that recognize other's movements and selects similar or different actions, as does the Broca's area; can influence movements directly through corticospinal projections or ind
What are the three regions of the prefrontal cortex? The dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the orbitofrontal cortex, the ventromedial prefrontal cortex.
