Motor Cortex

Motor Cortex refers to that part of the brain where nerve cells are engaged in planning and directing the actions of muscles and glands that are under conscious control. For example, a person lifting weights has the Motor Cortex sending orders through a chain of nerves to the biceps muscles, resulting in movement (lifting the weights), and at the same time sweat glands of the upper arms are engaged and start sweating.
