What is the anteroposterior midline?
the line connecting the midpoint between the eyebrows and the lower border of the external occipital protuberance
What is the eyebrow-occipital line?
the horizontal line connecting the midpoint of the upper border of the eyebrow and the prominence of the external occipital protuberance
Where is the motor area located?
It is the projection of the precentral gyrus of the cerebral cortex on the scalp. Its upper point is .5 cm posterior to the midpoint of the anteroposterior midline, while its lower point is at the junction of the eyebrow-occipital line and the temporal hairline. The connectin line between these two points is the motor area.
Indications of upper 1/5 of motor area (lower limb and trunk):
Paralysis of the contralateral lower limb
Indications of the middle 2/5 of motor area (upper limb):
Paralysis of the contralateral upper limb
Indications of the lower 2/5 of the motor area (face, first speech area):
Contralateral central facial paralysis, motor aphasia, dribbling saliva, impaired speech
Where is the sensory area located?
It is the projection of the postcentral gyrus of the cerebral cortex on the scalp. The parallel line, 1.5 cm posterior to the motor area, is the sensory area.
Indications of the upper 1/5 of the sensory area (lower limb, head, and trunk):
Pain, numbness, paresthesia of the contralateral lumbar region and leg, pain of the occiput and neck, dizziness.
Indications of the middle 2/5 of the sensory area (upper limb):
Pain, numbness, paresthesia of the contralateral upper limb
Indications of the lower 2/5 of the sensory area (face):
Contralateral facial numbness, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, toothache, temporomandibular arthritis
What is the location of the chorea and tremor controlling area?
The parallel line 1.5 cm anterior to the motor area
Indications of the chorea and tremor controlling area:
