Prefrontal Cortex
The Prefrontal Cortex, Fifth Edition, provides users with a thoroughly updated version of this comprehensive work that has historically served as the classic reference on this part of the brain. The
Neuron Activity Related to Short-Term Memory
TLDR
Nerve cells in the monkey's prefrontal cortex and nucleus medialis dorsalis of the thalamus show changes of firing frequency associated with the performance of a delayed response test, interpreted as suggestive evidence of a role of frontothalamic circuits in the attentive process involved in short-term memory.

TLDR
A previous investigation showed that bilateral or unilateral cooling of the pre-frontal cortical convexity produces marked and reversible deficits of performance in animals trained at the direct-method version of the delayed-response test, so the same test was adopted for the present study.

In phylogeny as in ontogeny, the association cortex of the frontal lobe, also known as the prefrontal cortex, is a late-developing region of the neocortex. It is also one of the cortical regions to

TLDR
This chapter presents a conceptual model of the representational and executive functions of the cortex of the frontal lobe derived from empirical evidence obtained principally in the monkey, which suggests that at least one of the mechanisms for the retention of working memory of either kind seems to be the reentry of excitability through recurrent cortical circuits.
