Located in front of the parietal and temporal lobes, the frontal lobe is responsible for voluntary motor coordination
and rhythmic movements of the head and neck
. This lobe is also involved in language and planning functions. It is separated from the other elements by the central sulcus and the lateral sulcus, and represents nearly a third of each hemisphere, divided into three parts on each side: the primary motor cortex, premotor cortex, and prefrontal cortex.
