Reasons for Learning Disorder Increases

Go to

PreFrontal Association Cortex—decides what we want to move and also has to do with executive functions (focus, concentration, and planning)

Premotor Cortex—involved in the initial planning of body movement

Primary Motor Cortex  - sends signals to move muscles

Primary Somatic Sensory Cortex—where senses from the body are initially sent, like joint positions, muscle stretch, pain and temperature information

Posterior Parietal Cortex—interprets what we expect to feel, as opposed to what the body is actually feeling

Primary Visual Cortex—initial area that processes visual information

Cerebellum - Helps control motor movement coordination, balance, equilibrium and muscle tone

Brainstem - Relays information to and from the higher brain centers, also controls basic life functions and processes (breathing, heart beat, etc...)
