Many contemporary investigators are unaware of the important papers involving lesions of the primate primary motor cortex published prior to those revealed by a computer search of the literature (i.e., papers published prior to about 1966). In order to increase awareness of these reports, we present here an annotated bibliography of these papers beginning with that of Ferrier and Yeo (1884). We provide evidence that these papers can provide valuable information on the function of the primate motor cortex and on recovery of behavior after brain lesions, and are also useful for sharpening the questions posed by more refined modern studies.
