Area

The size of a two-dimensional space. One calculates the area by multiplying the area's length by its width.

area

A measurement of the square footage contained within certain boundaries.

For example, irregular activity of secondary motor areas, which regulate the M1 activity, could lead to the abnormal bilateral M1 activity (23).
In the Personal Social and Fine Motor areas, in which boys also had worse performance, the most failed items were "brushes teeth without help" and "indicates the longest line", respectively.
Studies show similarity in activation of brain areas during ME and MI, highlighting the Primary Motor (M1), Supplementary Motor Area (SMA), Pre-Motor and somatosensory cortex in the parietal lobe [15,16].
This may support a more flexible embodied theory suggesting that other areas of the brain, in addition to motor areas are recruited during action-related language.

Current results illustrate that BA47, (1) participates in a frontal language production system, which probable includes not only the classical Broca's area, but also BA46 and the medial extension of BA6, corresponding to the supplementary motor area, and some subcortical areas ("Broca complex", Ardila, Bernal, & Rosselli, 2016c) (Figure 2); (2) it also has a secondary participation in semantic processing; coactivartion with left temporal areas involved in semantic processing (BA37 and BA20).
Therefore, other brain regions can be associated with complex motor performances and motor learning, including nonprimary motor areas, such as premotor cortex (PMC) [24].

FoG may be due to a failure to adequately scale amplitudes for the intended movement [54] and/or defective motor programming by the supplementary motor area (SMA) and its maintenance by the basal ganglia, leading to a mismatch between intention and automation [54].
These areas included ACC, dorsolateral PFC, thalamus, posterior cingulate cortex (PCC), insula, pons/midbrain region, supplementary motor area, sensorimotor area, hippocampus, and middle cingulate cortex.
