Recent imaging studies of motor function provide new insights into the organization of the premotor areas of the frontal lobe. The pre-supplementary motor area and the rostral portion of the dorsal premotor cortex, the 'pre-PMd', are, in many respects, more like prefrontal areas than motor areas. Recent data also suggest the existence of separate functional divisions in the rostral cingulate zone.
