Arterial supply of the feline motor cortex.
The arterial supply of the feline motor cortex is derived from both the anterior and middle cerebral arteries. The anterior cerebral artery supplies most of cortical area 6 (premotor cortex), the intrafundal cruciate and medial postcruciate cortex, (hindlimb motor cortex), and the midline and medial portions of the sensory areas 3a-7. The middle cerebral artery supplies the lateral prorean cortex, (lateral premotor cortex), precruciate and lateral sigmoid cortex, (forelimb motor cortex), and the remainder of the coronal and Sylvian cortical areas.
