Lateral view of the cerebral cortex showing the principal gyri and sulci. Major structures include the central sulcus and the precentral (primary motor), premotor, and postcentral (primary somatosensory) gyri. Also note the gyri situated rostral to the premotor cortex, including the orbital gyri, which mediate higher order intellectual functions and contribute to the regulation of emotional behavior. Brocas motor speech area and Wernickes area (for reception of speech) are important areas…

Autism Brain SPECT scan Part I-This video presents the use of Brain SPECT imaging to analyze the blood flow (i.e. related to metabolism) of the cerebral cortex in autism. The video is in two parts. Part I is about the experience of doing a SPECT brain imaging with a child with autism and one of his parents. Part II will explain a little more about what is known regarding the functions of cerebral cortex, and the results obtained from this analysis.
