Location: Prefrontal gyrus, frontal lobe

Secondary motor cortices

Function: Integration of visual and motor information
Location: Parietal lobe

Location: Premotor area, superior to Supplementary motor cortex
Function: Planning and coordination of complex movements
Location: Premotor area, inferior to Premotor cortex
