Cortex—Sensory, Motor, and Association Areas
Lecture no. 6 from the course: Understanding the Brain
Taught by Professor Jeanette Norden | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
This lecture introduces the traditional and modern classification of sensory, motor, and association cortex. One of the crucial discoveries of the past 40 years is that much of what was previously called association cortex is actually sensory in function. For example, there are many more cortical areas devoted to vision than previously thought.
