About This Quiz & Worksheet

Test your ability to understand the characteristics of the premotor cortex. Quiz questions assess your knowledge of what the premotor cortex does and the two areas of the premotor cortex.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In these assessments you'll be tested on the following:

  • Part of the brain responsible for movement
  • What the premotor cortex is responsible for
  • Two regions of the premotor cortex
  • What scientists learned about the premotor cortex
  • Where the motor cortex region is located in the brain

Skills Practiced

This worksheet and quiz let you practice the following skills:

  • Reading comprehension- ensure that you draw the most important information from the related premotor cortex lesson
  • Information recall- access the knowledge you've gained regarding the two regions of the premotor cortex
  • Knowledge application- use your knowledge to answer questions about what scientists have discovered about the premotor cortex

Additional Learning

To review concepts related to the premotor cortex, read through the brief lesson Functions of the Premotor Cortex. This lesson will help you:

  • Identify what the motor cortex and the prefrontal cortex of the brain are and where they are located
  • Understand where the premotor cortex is located on the motor cortex area of the brain
  • Learn about what the premotor cortex is responsible for such as orientation and coordination
  • Recall the areas of the premotor cortex such as the lateral and medial area and what these regions are responsible for carrying out
  • Review research scientists have discovered about the premotor cortex and its importance in the science and medical fields
