sensorimotor strip
The term sensorimotor strip refers to a composite structure of the primary motor cortex and the primary somatosensory cortex. In humans and macaques it is located in portions of the precentral gyrus and the postcentral gyrus, which meet at the floor of the central sulcus ( Anthoney-1994 ). In the rat ( Swanson-2004 ) and the mouse ( Hof-2000 ) it is located on the dorsolateral area of the rostral cerebral cortex. See also sensorimotor cortex.
