The Architecture of Cognitive Control in the Human Prefrontal Cortex
The prefrontal cortex (PFC) subserves cognitive control: the ability to coordinate thoughts or actions in relation with internal goals. Its functional architecture, however, remains poorlyExpand

An information theoretical approach to prefrontal executive function
The prefrontal cortex subserves executive control--that is, the ability to select actions or thoughts in relation to internal goals. Here, we propose a theory that draws upon concepts fromExpand

Imaging unconscious semantic priming
Visual words that are masked and presented so briefly that they cannot be seen may nevertheless facilitate the subsequent processing of related words, a phenomenon called masked priming,. It has beenExpand

The role of the anterior prefrontal cortex in human cognition
Complex problem-solving and planning involve the most anterior part of the frontal lobes including the fronto-polar prefrontal cortex (FPPC), which is especially well developed in humans comparedExpand

Motivation and cognitive control in the human prefrontal cortex
The prefrontal cortex (PFC) subserves cognitive control, that is, the ability to select thoughts or actions in relation to internal goals. Little is known, however, about how the PFC combinesExpand

Predictive Codes for Forthcoming Perception in the Frontal Cortex
Incoming sensory information is often ambiguous, and the brain has to make decisions during perception. “Predictive coding” proposes that the brain resolves perceptual ambiguity by anticipating theExpand

Anterior Prefrontal Function and the Limits of Human Decision-Making
The frontopolar cortex (FPC), the most anterior part of the frontal lobes, forms the apex of the executive system underlying decision-making. Here, we review empirical evidence showing that the FPCExpand

Broca's Area and the Hierarchical Organization of Human Behavior
The prefrontal cortex subserves executive control, i.e., the organization of action or thought in relation to internal goals. This brain region hosts a system of executive processes extending fromExpand

Foundations of human reasoning in the prefrontal cortex
TLDR
We present a model of human reasoning as an algorithm implemented in the prefrontal cortex (see the Perspective by Hare). Expand
