Washington, February 6( ANI ): Mice can recover from physically debilitating strokes that damage the primary motor cortex - the region of the brain that controls most movement in the body - if the rodents are quickly subjected to physical conditioning that rapidly "rewires" a different part of the brain to take over lost function.
Afferent input into these nuclei is from the cerebral cortex, information being received from the primary motor cortex (Brodmann's area 4), primary sensory cortex (Brodmann's area 3, 1, 2), association cortex (Brodmann's area 5), premotor cortex (Brodmann's area 6), and supplementary cortex (Brodmann's area 6).
