Middle cerebral artery syndrome is a condition where the blood supply from the middle cerebral artery is restricted, leading to a reduction of the function of the portions of the brain supplied by that vessel.

Because this artery supplies much of the primary motor cortex, the cortical homunculus can be used to localize the defect more precisely.
