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.

The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Neuroscience: Afferent and efferent projections outside the frontal cortex Based on their anatomical studies, Petrides and Pandya made the crucial observation that area 10 as well as rotsrocaudal 9 does not project to the parietal cortex, the inferotemporal cortex or the visual areas of occipital cortex.

Distinctions between dorsal and ventral premotor areas: Evidence for a functional gradient along the dorsal rostro-caudal axis The strongest evidence to date for a functional gradient along the rostro-caudal axis of the frontal lobes comes from human fMRI studies in which the level of abstraction of response selection was progressively varied in each individual participant.

First, extensive training on the task could have reduced control demands and permitted transfer tne the rule to PMd from PFC through automation. Comparison of learning-related neuronal activity in the dorsal premotor cortex and striatum.

Two potential explanations have been given to reconcile this result with those rosttrocaudal in the broader literature on abstraction and PMd 69 First, neurons in progressively rostral regions of the frontal cortex seem distinguished by their ability to support more-abstract representations and more-complex rules.

Here, we take an updated look at the literature on hierarchical control, with particular focus on the functional organization of lateral frontal cortex. Conclusions and future directions The evidence discussed in this Review supports two new insights about frontal organization.
