Abstract The proposed theory can account for analogies based on learned relationships between elements in the source and target domains. However, its explanatory power regarding the discovery of new relationships during analogical reasoning is limited. We offer an alternative perspective for the role of PFC in analogical thought that may better address different types of analogical mappings. 
The Cognitive Neuroscience of Semantic Memory
TLDR
Evidence that conceptual knowledge about concrete objects is acquired through experience with them, distributed across brain regions that are involved in perceiving or acting upon them, and impaired via damage to these brain regions is reviewed.

Dissociable brain states linked to common and creative object use
TLDR
The present experiment is the first to demonstrate a dynamic tradeoff between anterior frontal and posterior occipitotemporal regions brought about by the close‐ or open‐ended task demands.
Cognition Without Control
TLDR
It is argued that cognitive control impedes convention learning and that delayed prefrontal maturation is a necessary adaptation for human learning of social and linguistic conventions.
