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…

Somatosensory Cortex Plays an Essential Role in Forelimb Motor Adaptation in Mice: Neuron

The somatosensory cortex of people with fibromyalgia is more excitable and thus more likely to interpret touch as painful.

Somatosensory Cortex Linked to Increased Sensitivity to Touch in Fibromyalgia

The somatosensory cortex of people with fibromyalgia is more excitable and thus more likely to interpret touch as painful.

POSTCENTRAL GYRUS is part of parietal lobe. Primary somatosensorty cortex is located here; responsible for the SENSE OF TOUCH.
