We assessed the anatomo-functional relationship between neurophysiological and cytoarchitectonic features of the ventral convexity of primary motor (area F1) and premotor (areas F4 and F5) cortex. Results showed that the dorsal and ventral sectors of areas F4 and F1 form two distinct functional clusters for the organization of motor acts in space and of mouth simple movements, respectively, while F5 is an anatomo-functional area involved in motor-based high order socio-cognitive functions.
