Significance The frontal cortex has long been understood as the seat of higher level cognition. Recent research, however, highlights its role in modulating perception. Here, we present a theoretical framework for frontal involvement in perceptual decision making and test it with the causal technique of transcranial magnetic stimulation. We find that progressively rostral regions of frontal cortex are involved in the control of progressively later stages of perceptual decision making. These… Expand
