The Intelligent Movement Machine

Michael S. A. Graziano

Oxford University Press

The hypothesis of hierarchy in the cortical motor system has a long history of conflicting opinions. Whether any premotor cortex existed was initially controversial. Researchers then began to describe not one but at least six premotor areas, and the exact properties of these areas are still debated. This chapter reviews the emergence of ideas on these many premotor areas.
