Abstract
Brain imaging techniques have demonstrated functional specialisation of multiple areas within the motor system. They have also defined the patterns of interactions between these regions during normal motor function and in motor disorders. Functional imaging makes visible the changes in cortical activity that take place over time during motor functions, from the activations a fraction of a second before voluntary action to cortical neuronal plasticity several weeks after injury. Recently, the functional abnormalities underlying various acquired and developmental motor disorders have been described, as well as the effects of therapeutic intervention.
