Neuromuscular Physical Therapy part1

longitudinal fissure separates the cerebral hemispheres from one another
transverse fissure separates the cerebrum from the cerebellum
lateral sulcus separates termporal lobe from the frontal lobe and the parietal lobe
central sulcus separates the frontal lobe from the parietal lobe. Contains pre and postcentral gyri.
cerebral cortex the conscious mind; contains motor, sensory, and association areas
motor area controls voluntary movement (frontal lobe)
sensory area conscious awareness of incoming stimuli
association area integrate, analyze, evaluate information for purposeful action
6 lobes on each side: frontal, parietal, occipital, temporal, insular, and libmic
Frontal Lobe voluntray muscle activation, emotions and judgments, Broca's area ( controls motor aspect of speech), and frontal eye field
Primary motor area in precentral gyrus. Allows for voluntary control of skeletal movement (frontal lobe)
Damage to primary motor area affects voluntary movement, not reflex movements
Pyramidal cells in precentral gyrus, form the voluntary motor tract
voluntary motor control tract also called corticospinal tract
Premotor cortex found anterior to precentral gyrus. controls learned motor patterns like typing.
Broca's area in left frontal lobe. Controls speaking ability
Frontal eye field voluntary movement of eyes
Parietal Lobe Postcentral gyrus: primary sensory cortex for integration of sensation; receives fibers conveying touch, prioproception, pain and temperature from the opposite side of the body
Primary somatosensory cortex in postecentral gyrus, info received from proprioreceptors in muscles and skin's sensory receptors to identify the area being stimulated.
Somatosensory association area analyzes and evaluates sensory inputs for texture, size, relationship of its parts. Recognition by stored memories.
