Hidden region in the human brain discovered

It turns out we humans may have an extra type of thinky bit that isn't found in other primates. A previously unknown brain structure was identified while scientists carefully imaged parts of the human brain for an upcoming atlas on brain anatomy.

Neuroscientist George Paxinos and his team at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) have named their discovery the endorestiform nucleus - because it is located within (endo) the inferior cerebellar peduncle (also called the restiform body). It's found at the base of the brain, near where the brain meets the spinal cord.

This area is involved in receiving sensory and motor information from our bodies to refine our posture, balance and movements.

How do you explain Clyde the Monkey driving old Clint's motor then?

In the region responsible for integrating sensory and motor information and unique to humans...Could be something as simple as an area that allows us to do extremely fine manipulation; like making art, complex tool-making,
even accurate throwing.

Endorestiform nucleus is responsible for integrating sensory and motor information.
Sounds a lot like the dance nucleus of the brain.
Imagine the lab experiments.
