The Broca’s Area
The Broca’s area is a main area in the cerebral cortex located in the frontal portion of the left frontal lobe. It produces language and controls motor functions involved with speech with help from motor neurons that are located here. Broca’s area was discovered in 1861 by a man named Paul Broca. He found that it played a large role in the articulation of speech.

There are two parts to the Broca’s area: the Pars Triangularus and the Pars Oeprcularis. The Pars Triangularus is located in the front portion of the area and is believed to help the brain to interpret different stimulus modes. Verbal conducts are also programmed here. The Pars Opercularis is located in the rear portion and is believed to help coordinate the organs that are used to produce speaking.
