Effects of a frontal lesion on the cortical potentials associated with voluntary movement in the awake monkey

Journal of Neurotrauma
N N Peterson, J C Arezzo


An accidental, punctate lesion to a medial portion of the frontal lobe, including supplementary motor cortex and anterior commissure, produced a change in the cortical potentials preceding voluntary movement in a cynomolgus monkey. At the time of the lesion, the animal was highly trained in a repetitive voluntary movement task, and baseline mapping of specific movement-related potentials (MRPs) was complete. Prelesion MRPs were characterized by a well-defined N2 response, which began approximately 100 msec before the onset of movement. This response was centered over the contralateral precentral gyrus and believed to reflect the phasic portion of the corticospinal discharge. After the lesion, the animal fully recovered the ability to perform the movement task. However, the amplitude of N2 on the side ipsilateral to the lesion was significantly reduced. This decrease was not associated with any deficit in movement execution. EMG measurements did not exhibit any diminished or abnormal patterns of activity. These data suggest that portions of the frontal lobe not directly involved in the genesis of MRPs may still provide a supportive role in organizing the sequence and pattern of neuroelectric activity associated with movement.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
