Cortical and Subcortical Contributions to Stop Signal Response Inhibition: Role of the Subthalamic Nucleus
Suppressing an already initiated manual response depends critically on the right inferior frontal cortex (IFC), yet it is unclear how this inhibitory function is implemented in the motor system. ItExpand

Inhibition and the right inferior frontal cortex
It is controversial whether different cognitive functions can be mapped to discrete regions of the prefrontal cortex (PFC). The localisationist tradition has associated one cognitive function -Expand

  • 15 June 2011
A better understanding of the neural systems underlying impulse control is important for psychiatry. Although most impulses are motivational or emotional rather than motoric per se, it is researchExpand

Stop-signal inhibition disrupted by damage to right inferior frontal gyrus in humans
The precise localization of executive functions such as response inhibition within the prefrontal cortex (PFC), although theoretically crucial, has proven to be controversial and difficult.Expand

Triangulating a Cognitive Control Network Using Diffusion-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Functional MRI
The ability to stop motor responses depends critically on the right inferior frontal cortex (IFC) and also engages a midbrain region consistent with the subthalamic nucleus (STN). Here we usedExpand

Inhibition and the right inferior frontal cortex: one decade on
In our TICS Review in 2004, we proposed that a sector of the right inferior frontal cortex (rIFC) in humans is critical for inhibiting response tendencies. Here we survey new evidence, discussExpand

  • 1 June 2007
The concept of “inhibition” is widely used in synaptic, circuit, and systems neuroscience, where it has a clear meaning because it is clearly observable. The concept is also ubiquitous in psychology.Expand

Cognitive enhancing effects of modafinil in healthy volunteers
Abstract Rationale. Modafinil, a novel wake-promoting agent, has been shown to have a similar clinical profile to that of conventional stimulants such as methylphenidate. We were therefore interestedExpand

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Response Inhibition: Relevance for Genetic Research in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
Psychological functions that are behaviorally and neurally well specified may serve as endophenotypes for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) research. Such endophenotypes, which lieExpand

Converging Evidence for a Fronto-Basal-Ganglia Network for Inhibitory Control of Action and Cognition
Imagine you are at an intersection, waiting for the traffic lights. They turn green, and you are about to press the gas pedal, when suddenly a cyclist swerves into your lane. Before your foot hasExpand
