Caption: Brain-body control. Illustration of a section through the cortex of the frontal lobe, showing brain areas that control voluntary movements in parts of the body. An outline of the surface of the cerebral cortex is shown (blue). Areas of the brain are demarcated beside body parts that they control. At upper left, the paracentral lobule is associated with toes and lower limb. Clockwise, the trunk, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers. Parts of the face include eye, lips and jaw. Tongue and swallowing at lower right. The skill to move and control these body areas is proportional to the amount of brain area involved.
