These patients act as if they cannot find mid-dorsolateral and mid-ventrolateral pre- the mental rules to guide their behavior. The frontal regions play different roles, regardless prefrontal cortex may be the only brain region of whether the task involves spatial, visual, or that can represent cues for behaviors, reper- verbal working memory. For example, among the prefrontal neurons that process in- right mid-ventral BA 47 was activated prima- formation that achieves a goal.

As A more dorsal activation also occurs in BA 46 noted earlier, they initially fire in response to and 9 when the task requires a person to mon- unpredicted rewards. With experience, these itor or manipulate, for example, a set of spatial dopaminergic neurons are activated by cues locations held in working memory and make that predict rewards and not by the rewards comparisons with new stimuli. Their firing is inhibited when a re- memory task activates BA 9 and 46/9 on the ward does not occur. Activation studies also sugggest that pre- prefrontal neurons more rapidly over the time frontal cortex is organized by fairly separable of learning, which may help link more infor- storage and executive processes. Later, for example, especially activate the anterior with additional training, the cues that fired the cingulate. The primarily involved in the maintenance and mon- dopamine influx, then, allows for experience- itoring of items in working memory or in main- dependent plasticity. The prefrontal syndrome includes deficits more posterior and medial to those identified in motor programming, especially evident during maintenance.
