Recent findings have altered radically our thinking about the functional role of the parietal cortex. According to this view, the parietal lobe consists of a multiplicity of areas with specific connections to the frontal lobe. These areas, together with the frontal areas to which they are connected, mediate distinct sensorimotor transformations related to the control of hand, arm, eye or head movements. Space perception is not unitary, but derives from the joint activity of the fronto-parietal circuits that control actions requiring space computation.
