TY - JOUR. T1 - Performance on tests of frontal lobe function reflect general intellectual ability. AU - Obonsawin, M. C.. AU - Page, J.. AU - Chalmers, P.. AU - Cochrane, R.. AU - Low, G.. AU - Crawford, John Robertson. PY - 2002. Y1 - 2002. N2 - Recent studies have indicated that performance tin tests of frontal lobe function are highly associated with general intellectual ability (g). Some authors have even claimed that the available evidence does not support a more specific account of frontal lobe function than to provide a general intellectual function for the performance of goal directed tasks. foe examined the relationship between performance on the WAIS-R (as a measure of g) and performance on standard tests of frontal lobe function in 123 healthy individuals. Our results demonstrate that in healthy individuals (i) performance on the most popular tests of frontal lobe function shares significant variance, and (ii) a large proportion of that shared variance is highly associated with ...
Injury to the frontal lobes or interruptions of subcortical connections with the frontal lobe impair the functions of the frontal lobes, and some of these deficits of frontal lobe function are called executive deficits. Several studies suggest that frontal lobe dysfunction is often associated with aging. For example, Mittenberg, Seidenberg, OLeary, and DiGiulio (1989) compared older and younger individuals on tests that assessed frontal, parietal, and temporal lobe functions. These investigators found that it was frontal lobe function that best correlated with age.. Some of the most common executive deficits associated with frontal lobe dysfunction are forms of perseverative behavior. One of the tests that patients with frontal lobe perform poorly is the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test. In this test there are a series of cards that have different geometric designs, and these geometric designs have different colors and a different number of designs on each card. The participants are asked to sort ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Selective visual attention in patients with frontal lobe lesions or Parkinsons disease. AU - Lee, Sonia S.. AU - Wild, Krista. AU - Hollnagel, Caroline. AU - Grafman, Jordan. PY - 1999/2/1. Y1 - 1999/2/1. N2 - Visual selective attention and response competition were tested in patients with frontal lobe lesions or with Parkinsons disease, and matched normal controls. The target stimuli were presented with flanking distractors that were either compatible, incompatible, or neutral to the target stimulus. The distance between the target and distractors was systematically varied. A control condition without distractors was also included. Subjects response times to target stimuli and accuracy were measured. Both patient groups responded significantly slower and less accurately than their respective matched normal controls across all interference conditions and spatial distances. However, they did not show significantly greater interference or facilitation effects. Thus, the data ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Alteration of frontal EEG asymmetry during tryptophan depletion predicts future depression. AU - Allen, John J.B.. AU - McKnight, Katherine M.. AU - Moreno, Francisco A.. AU - Demaree, Heath A.. AU - Delgado, Pedro L.. PY - 2009/5/1. Y1 - 2009/5/1. N2 - Background: Tryptophan depletion (TD) reduces brain serotonin and may induce acute depressive symptomatology, especially among those with a history of Major Depression. Depressive response to TD among euthymic patients with a history of depression also predicts future depression. Better prediction might result by assessing a putative endophenotype for depressive risk, frontal electroencephalographic (EEG) asymmetry, in the context of TD. Method: Nine euthymic history-positive participants and nine controls were administered TD. Symptomatic and EEG frontal asymmetry data were collected for 6 h following TD, and clinical status was followed for the next 12 months. Results: The magnitude of TD-induced change in frontal EEG asymmetry ...

N2 - The frontal lobes have been ascribed many of the psychological processes that underlie the highest forms of human adaptation and achievement. In most modern theories, frontal neural systems are the pivotal mediators of acculturation and social conduct, flexibility of thought and action, adaptive behavior, and goal attainment. Yet, despite this celebrated role in complex human behavior, the frontal lobes can sustain damage early in life that appears to have little impact on the organism, at least in terms of standard neuropsychologic and neurologic examinations. Hebb (1949) characterized the paradox this way.. AB - The frontal lobes have been ascribed many of the psychological processes that underlie the highest forms of human adaptation and achievement.

This study examined the relations of school-age childrens depressive symptoms, frontal EEG asymmetry, and maternal history of childhood-onset depression (COD). Participants were 73 children, 43 of whom had mothers with COD. Childrens EEG was recorded at baseline and while watching happy and sad film clips. Depressive symptoms were measured using parent-report of Childrens Depression Inventory. The key findings are the interaction effects between baseline and film frontal EEG asymmetry on child depressive symptoms. Specifically, relative right frontal EEG asymmetry while watching happy or sad film clip was associated with elevated depressive symptoms for children who also exhibited right frontal EEG asymmetry at baseline. Results suggest that right frontal EEG asymmetry that is consistent across situations may be an marker of depression-prone children.
The course will provide an overview of acquired deficits following damage to the frontal lobes of the brain. Evidence predominantly from neurological patients but also functional neuroimaging of healthy individuals will be related where possible. Specific areas include disorders of attention, executive function, memory and social cognition that arise after lesions in specific regions of the frontal lobes. Different theoretical views of frontal lobe function will also be discussed such as the supervisory system model and the somatic marker hypothesis ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Prospective memory and frontal lobe function. AU - Neulinger, K.. AU - Oram, J.. AU - Tinson, H.. AU - OGorman, J.. AU - Shum, Ho Keung David. PY - 2016/1/1. Y1 - 2016/1/1. N2 - The study sought to examine the role of frontal lobe functioning in focal prospective memory (PM) performance and its relation to PM deficit in older adults. PM and working memory (WM) differences were studied in younger aged (n = 21), older aged (n = 20), and frontal injury (n = 14) groups. An event-based focal PM task was employed and three measures of WM were administered. The younger aged group differed from the other two groups in showing significantly higher scores on PM and on one of the WM measures, but there were no differences at a statistically significant level between the older aged group and the frontal injury groups on any of the memory measures. There were, however, some differences in correlations with a WM measure between groups. It is concluded that there are similarities and ...
Damage to Brocas area, in particular, has been shown to affect the ability to speak, understand language, and to produce coherent sentences. One of the most famous case studies associated with frontal lobe damage is the case of Phineas Gage. He was a railway construction worker who suffered an unfortunate accident when a metal rod impaled his brain in the frontal region. Gage survived this accident but was said to have experienced some personality changes because of the trauma. Before the accident, Gage was described as a well-balanced and a smart, energetic person. After his accident, he was described as being child-like in his intellectual capacities and had a loss of social inhibition (behaving in ways which were considered socially inappropriate). This case study implies that the frontal lobes are essential to our personalities, intelligence, and social skills. As well as trauma to the head being a cause of damage to the frontal lobes, there are many other causes that can lead to damage. ...
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Abstract & Past experience is hypothesized to reduce computational demands in PFC by providing bottom-up predictive information that informs subsequent stimulus-action mapping. The present fMRI study measured cortical activity reductions (neural priming/repetition suppression) during repeated stimulus classification to investigate the mechanisms through which learning from the past decreases demands on the prefrontal executive system. Manipulation of learning at three levels of representation-stimulus, decision, and responserevealed dissociable neural priming effects in distinct frontotemporal regions, supporting a multiprocess model of neural priming. Critically, three distinct patterns of neural priming were identified in lateral frontal cortex, indicating that frontal computational demands are reduced by three forms of learning: (a) cortical tuning of stimulus-specific representations, (b) retrieval of learned
Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to measure activity in three frontal cortical areas, the lateral orbitofrontal cortex (lOFC), medial orbitofrontal cortex (mOFC)/ventromedial frontal cortex (vmPFC), and anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), when expectations about type of reward, and not just reward presence or absence, could be learned. Two groups of human subjects learned 12 stimulus-response pairings. In one group (Consistent), correct performances of a given pairing were always reinforced with a specific reward outcome, whereas in the other group (Inconsistent), correct performances were reinforced with randomly selected rewards. The mOFC/vmPFC and lOFC were not distinguished by simple differences in relative preference for positive and negative outcomes. Instead lOFC activity reflected updating of reward-related associations specific to reward type; lOFC was active whenever informative outcomes allowed updating of reward-related associations, regardless of whether the outcomes were
Decisions are typically guided by what we have experienced in the past. However, when direct experience is unavailable, animals and humans can imagine or infer the future to make choices. Outcome expectations that are based on direct experience and inference may compete for guiding behavior [1, 2], and they may recruit distinct but overlapping brain circuits [3-5]. In rodents, the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) contains neural signatures of inferred outcomes and is necessary for behavior that requires inference, but it is not necessary when responding can be based on direct experience [6-10]. In humans, OFC activity is also correlated with inferred outcome expectations [11, 12], but it is unclear whether the human OFC is selectively required for inference-based behavior. To test this, here we used non-invasive targeted continuous theta burst stimulation (cTBS) [13] to inactivate the human OFC in a sensory preconditioning task designed to isolate inference-based behavior from responding that can be ...
Working memory is hypothesized to comprise a collection of distinct components or processes, each of which may have a unique neural substrate. Recent neuroimaging studies have isolated a region of the left inferior frontal gyrus that appears to be related specifically to one such component: resolving interference from previous items in working memory. In the present study, we examined working memory in patients with unilateral frontal lobe lesions by using a modified version of an item recognition task in which interference from previous trials was manipulated. In particular, we focused on patient R.C., whose lesion uniquely impinged on the region identified in the neuroimaging studies of interference effects. We measured baseline working memory performance and interference effects in R.C. and other frontal patients and in age-matched control subjects and young control subjects. Comparisons of each of these groups supported the following conclusions. Normal aging is associated with changes to ...
Authors. Janet Grace, PhD, Paul F. Malloy, PhD. Description. The FrSBe, formerly known as the Frontal Lobe Personality Scale (FLoPS), provides a brief, reliable, and valid measure of three frontal systems behavioural syndromes: apathy, disinhibition and executive dysfunction. It also quantifies behavioural changes over time by including both baseline (retrospective) and current assessments of behaviour.. Research has demonstrated that many individuals with frontal lobe damage are capable of normal performance on traditional neuropsychological measures. However, their behaviour in natural settings is often disordered, resulting in severe impairment in social and occupational functioning. The FrSBe fills a gap in the assessment of frontal systems behavioural syndromes by providing a means to identify and quantify these behavioural problems so that they may be targeted for treatment.. The FrSBe includes a Total Score, as well as scores on three subscales related to the three frontal systems ...
However posterior the integration, the frontal cortex doesnt only communicate with other areas of the cerebral cortex. I believe a hugely overlooked part of our uniquely human brain wiring is the strong connectivity we see between the frontal cortex and the cerebellum, a non-cortical region of the brain. The cerebellum plays a crucial role in our motor control and the learning of complex, well-rehearsed routines. Researchers have recently argued that throughout the past million years of human evolution, the prefrontal cortex coevolved with brain support systems-such as the cerebellum-to help store, implement, and smooth out tried and true routines and solutions. This offloading would have given much needed relief to an overburdened working memory.. It has even been suggested that the increased cultural demands in only the past 10,000 years have put such an extraordinary burden on our working memory that it has driven an expansion of the cerebellum relative to the neocortex, contributing to the ...
Human ventrolateral frontal cortex (vlFC) is identified with cognitive processes such as language and cognitive flexibility. The relationship between it and the vlFC of other primates has therefore been the subject of particular speculation. We used a combination of structural and functional neuroimaging methods to identify key components of human vlFC. We compared how vlFC areas interacted with other brain areas in 25 humans and 25 macaques using the same methods. We identified a core set of 11 vlFC components that interacted in similar ways with similar distributed circuits in both species and, in addition, one distinctively human component in ventrolateral frontal pole. Fundamental differences in interactions with posterior auditory association areas in the two species were also present-these were ubiquitous throughout posterior human vlFC but channeled to different frontal regions in monkeys. Finally, there were some differences in interregional interactions within vlFC in the two species.
BACKGROUND: Structural variation in the neurexin-1 (NRXN1) gene increases risk for both autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and schizophrenia. However, the manner in which NRXN1 gene variation may be related to brain morphology to confer risk for ASD or schizophrenia is unknown. METHOD/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: 53 healthy individuals between 18-59 years of age were genotyped at 11 single nucleotide polymorphisms of the NRXN1 gene. All subjects received structural MRI scans, which were processed to determine cortical gray and white matter lobar volumes, and volumes of striatal and thalamic structures. Each subjects sensorimotor function was also assessed. The general linear model was used to calculate the influence of genetic variation on neural and cognitive phenotypes. Finally, in silico analysis was conducted to assess potential functional relevance of any polymorphisms associated with brain measures. A polymorphism located in the 3 untranslated region of NRXN1 significantly influenced white matter volumes in

Common effects of damage to the frontal lobe are varied. Patients who have experienced frontal lobe trauma may know the appropriate response to a situation but display inappropriate responses to those same situations in real life. Similarly, emotions that are felt may not be expressed in the face or voice. For example, someone who is feeling happy would not smile, and the voice would be devoid of emotion. Along the same lines, though, the person may also exhibit excessive, unwarranted displays of emotion. Depression is common in stroke patients. Also common is a loss of or decrease in motivation. Someone might not want to carry out normal daily activities and would not feel up to it.[7] Those who are close to the person who has experienced the damage may notice changes in behavior.[8] This personality change is characteristic of damage to the frontal lobe and was exemplified in the case of Phineas Gage. The frontal lobe is the same part of the brain that is responsible for executive ...

Examination of the current literature concerning the frontal lobes reveals an almost universal belief that surgical removals from this area must produce serious psychologic defects. The evidence on which the belief is founded, however, is not nearly so satisfactory as one might suppose. In this paper I propose to review and evaluate the published reports which attempt to analyze the functions of the frontal lobes on the basis of neurosurgical material. In the review, emphasis is laid on problems of method which are common to any such analysis, whatever region of the brain may be concerned. The occasion for a reevaluation of theories concerned with the frontal lobes was a fortunate opportunity to observe the social adjustment of K. M., a patient of Dr. Wilder Penfields, six years after a partial bilateral frontal lobectomy (Hebb and Penfield, 1 1940). The patients excellent recovery showed that a large bilateral removal is

Background: Frontal aslant tract (FAT) is a white matter bundle connecting the pre-supplementary motor area (pre-SMA) and the supplementary motor area (SMA) with the inferior frontal gyrus (IFG). The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the anatomical variability of FAT.. Materials and methods: Total number of fibres and the lateralisation index (LI) were calculated. We attempted to find factors contributing to the diversity of FAT regarding IFG terminations to the pars opercularis (IFG-Op) and to the pars triangularis (IFG-Tr). Magnetic resonance imaging of adult patients with diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) with total number of 98 hemispheres composed a cohort. V-shaped operculum was the most common (60.5%).. Results: Total number of FAT fibres had widespread and unimodal distribution (6 to 1765; median: 160). Left lateralisation was noted in 64.3% of cases and was positively correlated with total number of FAT fibres and the bundle projecting to IFG-Op (p , 0.01). LI correlated with ...

The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is thought to play a central role in higher order executive functions important in everyday life, such as planning, problem-solving and decision making. Disturbances in such abilities are seen after frontal lobe damage as well as in a variety of conditions, ranging from drug addiction to Parkinsons disease, and can have a significant impact on the patients autonomy and quality of life. Despite its broad clinical importance, the component processes underlying complex executive functions and their neural substrates within the PFC are poorly understood. Recent advances in cognitive neuroscience provide the opportunity to develop a much more detailed understanding of the component processes of executive function, and to relate these processes to particular sub-areas within the frontal lobes. This work examined the neural substrates of frontal-executive function in human participants with focal brain damage, in order to test the hypothesis that specific cognitive ...
Ever wonder why someone will continue to see the glass half full regardless of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary? According to new research conducted by the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging a fault in the function of the frontal lobe of the brain could be to blame.. Scientists have long been puzzled by peoples ability to predict their futures in ways that are unrealistically optimistic; how human optimism can be so indomitable regardless of a contrary reality. While there are certain mental health benefits to wearing rose colored glasses such as lower stress and anxiety they can also leave us grossly unprepared for the future because they make us less likely to take precautionary measures.. To conduct their study researches assembled 19 volunteer and presented them with a series of negative experiences, everything from car theft to a cancer diagnosis, while they were lying in an MRI. This allowed the researches to study the brain activity of participants while they were presented ...

Dysexecutive syndrome consists of a number of symptoms which tend to occur together (hence it being described as a syndrome). Broadly speaking, these symptoms fall into three main categories; cognitive, emotional and behavioural. Although many of these symptoms regularly co-occur, it is common to encounter patients who have several, but not all of these symptoms. This is one reason why some researchers are beginning to argue that dysexecutive syndrome is not the best term to describe these various symptoms (see criticisms below). The fact that many of the dysexecutive syndrome symptoms can occur alone has led some researchers to suggest that the symptoms should not be labelled as a syndrome as such. Some of the latest imaging research on frontal cortex areas suggests that executive functions may be more discrete than was previously thought. The argument is that rather than damage to the frontal cortex areas causing dysexecutive functions in general, that damage to multiple frontal cortex areas ...

The most common sites of hemorrhagic stroke are the regions of the brain supplied by the middle cerebral artery and its branches. The primary motor cortex of the frontal lobe (Brodmanns area 4) is affected when the rupture occurs in the pre-Rolandic artery, which is one of the main branches of the middle cerebral artery. Secondary motor areas, such as the posterior part of middle frontal gyrus (Brodmanns area 6), pars opercularis (Brocas area), pars triangularis, and other areas of the pre-frontal cortex can be damaged during a stroke; these areas of the frontal lobe are supplied by the Rolandic, the lateral frontobasal, and the pre-frontal arteries. Also post-Rolandic areas of the parietal lobe and the superior temporal gyrus are also afected sometimes. ...

Studies of Alzheimer disease have shown that imaging measures of temporal and parietal metabolism and blood flow predict disease course. Objective: To determine whether regional cerebral glucose metabolism predicts cognitive decline by testing 2 opposing hypotheses: (1) temporoparietal activity predicts decline (based on the idea that concomitant Alzheimer disease causes decline) vs (2) frontal hypometabolism predicts decline (based on evidence that subcortical frontal circuits are especially vulnerable to small vessel ischemia). Design: ...

Individual gyri on the dorsolateral surface of the cerebral hemisphere include the superior frontal gyrus, the middle frontal gyrus, the inferior frontal gyrus and the precentral gyrus; those on the mesial side of the hemisphere include part of the superior frontal gyrus, the superior rostral gyrus, the inferior rostral gyrus, and the straight gyrus ...
These absurd misbeliefs are generally expressed without particular concern, but, less frequently, the patient may be annoyed or demand insistently the removal of the limb (misoplegia). 69-72 These processes include inattention to the left hemibody, reduced sensory feedback, impaired attention resources, defect in body schemata or in selfawareness, internal representation, mental flexibility, and diffuse mental deterioration. 68 Furthermore, none of these theories-either psychological, or denial or emotional changes-adequately explains the more common occurrence of anosognosia with right hemisphere stroke. Empathy loss is probably at the origin of emotional and personality disorders due to frontal lesions.

There are many theories on how a healthy brain ages. Some of these ideas contradict conventional wisdom, which holds that aging is synonymous with memory loss. Although the human memory does tend to deteriorate modestly with age, many older people experience far more dramatic declines in cognitive abilities that are not related to memory, such as concentration, problem solving and decision-making. Unlike the ability to remember, which scientists have linked to the medial temporal region of the brain, these other abilities are closely associated with the frontal lobes.. A recent theory called the frontal lobe hypothesis1 proposes that some older people have disproportionate, age-related changes of frontal lobe structures and the cognitive abilities associated with those structures. Several sources of evidence, including neuropsychological, neuroanatomical and functional neuroimaging studies, support this theory.. Following up on the frontal lobe hypothesis, our team of scientists at the ...

We recorded smooth pursuit in 4 patients with small, discrete unilateral frontal lobe lesions and in 13 normal subjects. In all cases the lesions affected the frontal eye fields (FEF). The use of step ramp stimuli enabled the measurement of different parameters. Initial acceleration was measured to assess the open loop response, maximum and mean gain was an index of the closed loop response and inaccuracy was used to assess the ability of the saccadic system to refoveate. Patients showed a decreased gain towards the side of the lesion, with significant asymmetry. In contrast, acceleration was reduced in both directions without significant asymmetry. In the monkey, it has been shown that the middle temporal area (MT) codes motion in the contralateral side of space in both directions equally, whereas the posterior parietal cortex (PPC) contains cells which encode velocity asymetrically. Our findings would, therefore, be consistent with the hypothesis that there are two pathways from the homolog of MT in

The present study found that damage to OFC, but not to other areas within PFC, resulted in impaired performance on a probabilistic reversal learning task. This is consistent with two previous neuropsychological studies that reported impaired performance of a complex, gambling-like reversal learning task after OFC damage (Berlin et al., 2004; Hornak et al., 2004). The large cohort studied here allowed VLSM analysis to be applied to much of the PFC. We were able to confirm a regionally specific contribution of OFC, with the effect mainly driven by voxels in bilateral posteromedial OFC and to a lesser extent right lateral OFC, and to reject a critical role for other regions within PFC, notably including dACC (at least of the same effect size and within the anatomical constraints of our sample) in flexible reinforcement learning in a probabilistic environment.. Contrary to the performance of such patients on a simple, deterministic reversal learning task (Fellows and Farah, 2003), the impairment of ...
In two experiments, the performance of patients with frontal lobe lesions was examined on implicit and explicit tests of conceptual memory for organized lists of words. Frontal patients exhibited normal levels of conceptual priming on implicit category production and free association tests, but they exhibited impaired memory performance on explicit category- and associate-cued recall tests. The findings of normal performance on implicit conceptual tests suggest that frontal patients do not have a basic deficit in semantic processing of individual items. Impaired performance on explicit cued recall tests may be related to deficits in the use of organizational encoding and strategic retrieval processes.. ...
Lesions to prefrontal cortex (PFC) in humans can severely disrupt everyday decision-making, with concomitant effects on social and occupational functioning. Forty-six patients with unilateral lesions to prefrontal cortex and 21 healthy control subjects were administered three neuropsychological measures of decision-making: the Iowa Gambling Task, the Cambridge Gamble Task, and the Risk Task. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans were acquired from 40 patients, with region of interest (ROI) mapping of prefrontal subregions. The frontal patients showed only limited damage in medial and orbital prefrontal cortex, but greater damage in lateral prefrontal regions of interest. Patients with right frontal lesions preferred the risky decks on the Iowa Gambling Task, and differed significantly from left frontal and control subjects. Within the right frontal group, the preference for the risky decks was correlated with the total lesion volume and the volume of damage outside of the ventromedial prefrontal region
Expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) analysis is a powerful method to detect correlations between gene expression and genomic variants and is widely used to interpret the biological mechanism underlying identified genome wide association studies (GWAS) risk loci. Numerous eQTL studies have been performed on different cell types and tissues of which the majority has been based on microarray technology. We present here an eQTL analysis based on cap analysis gene expression sequencing (CAGEseq) data created from human postmortem frontal lobe tissue combined with genotypes obtained through genotyping arrays, exome sequencing, and CAGEseq. Using CAGEseq as an expression profiling technique combined with these different genotyping techniques allows measurement of the molecular effect of variants on individual transcription start sites and increases the resolution of eQTL analysis by also including the non-annotated parts of the genome. We identified 2410 eQTLs and show that non-coding transcripts are
A significant proportion of patients with presenile dementia due to primary cerebral atrophy do not have Alzheimers disease. One form of non-Alzheimer dementia may be designated as dementia of frontal lobe type (DFT), on the basis of a characteristic neuropsychological picture suggestive of frontal lobe disorder, confirmed by findings on single photon emission tomography. The case histories of seven patients exemplify the disorder: a presentation of social misconduct and personality change, unconcern and disinhibition, in the presence of physical well-being and few neurological signs. Assessment revealed economic and concrete speech with verbal stereotypes, variable memory impairment, and marked abnormalities on tasks sensitive to frontal lobe function. Visuo-spatial disorder was invariably absent. Comparisons of DFT and Alzheimer patients revealed qualitative differences in clinical presentation, neurological signs, profile of psychological disability, electroencephalography, single photon ...
DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS OF EPILEPTIC SEIZURES IN CRYPTOGENIC FOCAL FRONTAL LOBE EPILEPSY VERSUS PSYCHOGENIC NON-EPILEPTIC PAROXYSMS (A CASE REPORT)

It has been claimed that social behaviour changes after lesions of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC). However, lesions in humans are rarely restricted to a well defined cortical area. Although vmPFC lesions usually include medial orbitofrontal cortex (mOFC), they typically also affect subgenual and/or perigenual anterior cingulate cortex. The purpose of the current study is to investigate the role of mOFC in social valuation and decision-making. We tested four macaque monkeys prior to and after focal lesions of mOFC. Comparison of the animals pre- and postoperative performance revealed that, unlike lesions of anterior cingulate gyrus (ACCg), lesions of mOFC did not induce alterations in social valuation. MOFC lesions did, however, induce mild impairments in a probabilistic two-choice decision task, which were not seen after ACCg lesions. In summary, the double dissociation between the patterns of impairment suggest that vmPFC involvement in both decision-making and social valuation may be
A fundamental issue in neuroscience is the relation between structure and function. However, gross landmarks do not correspond well to microstructural borders and cytoarchitecture cannot be visualized in a living brain used for functional studies. Here, we used diffusion-weighted and functional MRI to test structure-function relations directly. Distinct neocortical regions were defined as volumes having similar connectivity profiles and borders identified where connectivity changed. Without using prior information, we found an abrupt profile change where the border between supplementary motor area (SMA) and pre-SMA is expected. Consistent with this anatomical assignment, putative SMA and pre-SMA connected to motor and prefrontal regions, respectively. Excellent spatial correlations were found between volumes defined by using connectivity alone and volumes activated during tasks designed to involve SMA or pre-SMA selectively. This finding demonstrates a strong relationship between structure and function

Neurons from the mouse frontal cortex, they found, clustered into 16 subtypes based on methylation patterns, while neurons from the human frontal cortex were more diverse and formed 21 subtypes. Inhibitory neurons-those that provide stop signals for messages in the brain-showed more conserved methylation patterns between mice and humans compared to excitatory neurons. The study also identified unique human neuron subtypes that had never been defined before. These results open the door to a deeper understanding of what sets human brains apart from those of other animals.. This study opens a new window into the incredible diversity of brain cells, says Eran Mukamel of the UC San Diego Department of Cognitive Science, a co-senior author of the work. Mukamel is a faculty fellow at the Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind at UC San Diego. Next, the researchers plan to expand their methylome study to look at more parts of the brain, and more brains..

To our knowledge, this is the first double-blind placebo-controlled evaluation using fMRI to study the effect of a cholinesterase inhibitor on brain function in subjects with MCI. Our results suggest that donepezil, when administered during a 3- to 6-month period to subjects with MCI, may potentially enhance brain activation in the left inferior frontal gyrus during memory processing.. The left inferior frontal gyrus has been implicated in an array of attention and memory processes, including encoding and retrieval and long- and short-term memory.12-16 Previous studies have shown this region to be implicated in subjects with MCI, compared with healthy elderly controls, during performance of memory tasks, including picture encoding.17 Moreover, initial studies of cholinergic-based drugs in AD or MCI have reported enhancement of functional activation levels in the frontal lobes, in general, as well as in the left inferior frontal gyrus.11,18-22 However, none of these studies were conducted in a ...
Recent functional neuroimaging studies have suggested that different neural substrates within the frontal lobes are associated with memory encoding, retrieval and monitoring. If this is the case, then it should be possible to find frontal patients with selective deficits to these processes. However, most laboratory based memory tests (e.g. Wechsler Memory Scale) require a combination of all these processes making it hard to find clear dissociations between patients. Using tests of everyday memory, this study documents a clear dissociation between a frontal patients (JB) impaired ability to retrieve events from the anterograde period relative to spared ability to retrieve events from the retrograde period. This is consistent with specific disruption to frontal mechanisms associated with encoding which disrupts the formation of new episodic memories. The defective mechanism may be related to more general aspects of cognitive processing (e.g. selection demands), but it is unlikely to reflect ...

In this common form of epilepsy, the seizures stem from the front of the brain. They can produce symptoms that appear to be psychiatric.
Our current findings from the Granger causality analyses showed that the PMC and preSMA are functionally connected with the caudate head and STN. Furthermore, the IFC is connected with the preSMA but not the caudate head or STN. Thus, with strong interconnectivity with the basal ganglia circuitry of motor control, the PMC and preSMA are in a position to engage the com petition of go and stop processes, whereas the IFC indirectly influence the basal ganglia circuitry via projection to the preSMA. These new findings provide evidence differentiating the roles of the IFC and preSMA during stop signal inhibition. In particular, these data are inconsistent with the hypothesis of a hyperdirect pathway from the IFC to STN for motor inhibitory control (Aron and Poldrack, 2006).. The results from PPI analyses further corroborated this hypothesis: the IFC showed greater connectivity with the preSMA during stop success than during stop error trials. A number of other brain regions including the superior ...
Title: Identifying Changes in the Synaptic Proteome of Cirrhotic Alcoholic Superior Frontal Gyrus. VOLUME: 9 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):N. Etheridge, R. D. Mayfield, R. A. Harris and P. R. Dodd.

Abstract: Hepatic complications are a common side-effect of alcoholism. Without the detoxification capabilities of the liver, alcohol misuse induces changes in gene and protein expression throughout the body. A global proteomics approach was used to identify these protein changes in the brain. We utilised human autopsy tissue from the superior frontal gyrus (SFG) of six cirrhotic alcoholics, six alcoholics without comorbid disease, and six non-alcoholic non-cirrhotic controls. ...

Economic theories of decision making are based on the principle of utility maximization, and reinforcement-learning theory provides computational algorithms that can be used to estimate the overall reward expected from alternative choices. These formal models not only account for a large range of behavioral observations in human and animal decision makers, but also provide useful tools for investigating the neural basis of decision making. Nevertheless, in reality, decision makers must combine different types of information about the costs and benefits associated with each available option, such as the quality and quantity of expected reward and required work. In this article, we put forward the hypothesis that different subdivisions of the primate frontal cortex may be specialized to focus on different aspects of dynamic decision-making processes. In this hypothesis, the lateral prefrontal cortex is primarily involved in maintaining the state representation necessary to identify optimal actions in a

PALEONEUROLOGY AND THE FRONTAL LOBESBrocas area has represented a major issue in evolutionary anthropology since the discovery of its association with language impairment. It was generally presumed that the whole frontal lobes had undergone important changes in our phylogenetic lineage, also because of their involvement in personality and executive functions. Accordingly, plenty of authors have declared so far that the fossil record supplies patent evidence of frontal lobe evolution, despite the fact that the fossil record, to date, has supplied none. In terms of frontal sulcal pattern, all human species display a similar scheme, at least from two million years (Tobias, 1987; Holloway, 1995). In terms of volume, there are still disagreements on whether or not humans and living apes share a similar allometric proportion of frontal cortex, and whether any minor difference may be statistically or functionally significant, (e.g., Semendeferi et al., 1997; Rilling, 2006; Barton and Venditti 2013; Smaers
Lets take the applications for obesity as our most relevant example here. Were there any citations of the literature on neurodegenerative disorders and appetite? Case studies of brain lesions and appetite? Studies of obese vs. lean individuals? Eating disordered vs. normal weight people? No, no, no, and no. Since they didnt cite any papers in these important [and more ecologically valid, if you really want to learn about self-control over food choices] areas of inquiry, heres what I learned from a PubMed search. A voxel-based morphometry study in patients with frontotemporal dementia demonstrated that binge eating was associated with greater degeneration in the right ventral insula, striatum, and orbitofrontal cortex (Wooley et al., 2007). Conversely, tumors in the right lateral frontal cortex have been associated with anorexia in several case reports (Houy et al., 2007; Trummer et al., 2002). In healthy subjects, transcranial direct current stimulation over DLPFC (specifically to increase ...
