frontal lobes are organized along their rostrocaudal axis to support hierarchical frontal networks interact via local and global hierarchical structure to support. An influential class of theory proposes that the frontal lobes are organized along their rostrocaudal axis to support hierarchical cognitive control. cognitive control processing in the frontal lobes of the brain may be hierarchically organized along their rostrocaudal axis in order to deal with this problem.

Curr Direct Psychol Sci. Also depicted in the figure is the spatial relationship of these regions to two other networks: Topics Discussed in This Paper. Each of these two broad cortical regions shows a gradient of laminar organization for example, differentiation from the most anterior to more-posterior sxis of the frontal cortex.

Die Cortexgliederung des Menschen. First, hierarchicql training on the task could have reduced control demands and permitted transfer of the rule to PMd from PFC through automation.

Giovanni Pezzulo 32 Estimated H-index: In this framework, the cerebral cortex evolved from two primordial parts: The extent to which goals like making a sandwich are maintained over longer temporal gaps — whereas more concrete goals like slicing bread and spreading mayonnaise are being updated — is referred to as temporal abstraction.

Striatal contributions to declarative memory retrieval. Friston Trends in Cognitive Sciences Dissociating state and item components of recognition memory using fMRI. Shaw P, et al.


Cytoarchitectonic divisions of the human and monkey frontal lobe Rostral and caudal axes are labelled and the numbers represent the update by Petrides and Pandya of the Brodmann and Walker cytoarchitecture maps. Robin N, Holyoak KJ. The frontal cortex FIG. For example, PFC neurons fire selectively based on stimulus identity and location when these features are response relevant, but their firing is less likely to depend on which motor response is associated with those cues than that of PMd neurons 53 Neural circuits sxis the retrieval and maintenance of abstract rules.

However, rules can also be more abstract in that they tye not specify a particular action, but a class of action rules.


Principles of Frontal Lobe Function. Cognitive control, hierarchy, and the rostro-caudal organization of the frontal lobes. Dissociable controlled retrieval and generalized selection mechanisms in ventrolateral prefrontal cortex.

In a cortical line each frontal area projects to an area that is more architectonically differentiated and to one that is less differentiated. Die Rindenfelder der niederen Affen. See other articles in PMC that cite the published article. However, it remains crucial to test whether perturbations in neural processing, such as due to stroke, asymmetrically influence processing in intact regions that are caudal but not rostral to the site of perturbation.

Hence, although having a structurally arrayed hierarchical organization is not a requirement for the control of complex sequential behaviourwhen such an architecture exists, the same action can be represented at different levels of abstraction. Support Center Support Center.

Frontal Cortex and the Hierarchical Control of Behavior. – Semantic Scholar

Common regions of the human frontal lobe recruited by diverse cognitive demands. One can continue to decompose the task until it is expressed as a unique roxtrocaudal of motor actions. Also depicted in the figure is the spatial relationship of these regions to thr other networks: The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Neuroscience: FPCS, frontoparietal control system.


Interestingly, a recent experiment has provided evidence for interactions between parallel rostro-caudal gradients along lateral and medial frontal cortex as more-abstract motivational factors are taken into consideration during cognitive control By clicking accept or continuing to use the site, you agree to the terms outlined thf our Privacy PolicyTerms of Serviceand Dataset License.

However, recent experiments have provided initial support for a functional organizing principle along the rostro-caudal axis of the frontal lobes that is based on a hierarchy of action control 16 — However, their functional organization remains controversial.

Is the rostro-caudal axis of the frontal lobe hierarchical?

However, despite the frontal cortex having been the focus of a considerable amount of research, it has not been easy to distinguish separate frontal rostdocaudal in terms of their functional properties.
