Deficits in strategy application following frontal lobe damage in man.
A quantitative investigation of the ability to carry out a variety of cognitive tasks was performed in patients who had sustained traumatic injuries which involved prefrontal structures, and it is argued that the problem arose from an inability to reactivate after a delay previously-generated intentions when they are not directly signalled by the stimulus situation.

The extent to which neuropsychological tests predicted the patients' everyday life problems is reported, supporting the conclusions that different tests measure different cognitive processes, and that there may be limits to the fractionation of the executive system.

A Neural Mechanism Mediating the Impact of Episodic Prospection on Farsighted Decisions
The data suggest that mrPFC uses information conveyed by the hippocampus to represent the undiscounted utility of envisaged events, and the immediate experience of the delayed reward value might then bias toward farsighted decisions.

This article considers the scientific process whereby new and better clinical tests of executive function might be developed, and what form they might take, and considers as an alternative approach a function-led development programme which in principle could yield tasks better suited to the concerns of the clinician because of the transparency afforded by increased “representativeness” and “generalisability.

Functional Specialization within Rostral Prefrontal Cortex (Area 10): A Meta-analysis
A meta-analysis of 104 functional neuroimaging studies using positron emission tomography/functional magnetic resonance imaging points to considerable functional segregation within rostral prefrontal cortex.
