Abstract  The cognitive control is critical when individuals select the movement appropriate to the current situation. Each area of cortical and subcortical motor areas is involved in different aspacts of the cognitive control of movement. Meanwhile, different areas which have close contact can be in charge of the same movement. In these areas, premotor cortex (PMC) and primary motor area (M1) is key to the transition of sensation and motion. Supplementary motor complex (SMC) and M1 guide the organization in sequence movement, while basal ganglia and pre-supplementary motor area (pre-SMA) dominate the inhibition of movement.
Keywords cognitive control      learning and memory      sequence movement      movement planning
