In recent years, considerable progress has been made in understanding the cognitive and neuroanatomical basis of high-level planning behaviour through a combination of neuropsychological, neuropharmacological and functional neuroimaging approaches. In this article, early evidence suggesting a relationship between planning impairments and damage to the frontal lobe is reviewed and several contemporary studies of planning behaviour in patients with circumscribed frontal lobe excisions are… 
Planning and problem solving: From neuropsychology to functional neuroimaging
TLDR
An overview of recent behavioural and neuroimaging studies that have employed the Tower of London task is presented to draw specific conclusions about the likely neural and cognitive basis of planning function.
A Review of the Neuropsychological Dimensions of Tourette Syndrome
TLDR
The aims of this review are to give an overview of the neuropsychological dimensions of TS, to report how neuro psychological functions evolve from childhood to adulthood, and to explain how various confounding factors can affect TS patients’ performance in neuro psychological tasks.
Neural correlates of cognitive decline in ALS: An fNIRS study of the prefrontal cortex
TLDR
The fNIRS-derived oxygenation measure shows promise as a sensitive neural marker to identify early neuropsychological impairments due to ALS.
Executive functions and their disorders.

TLDR
The emerging view suggests that executive function is mediated by dynamic and flexible networks, that can be characterised using functional integration and effective connectivity analyses, compatible with the clinical presentation of executive dysfunction associated with a range of pathologies, and with evidence that recovery of executive function can occur after traumatic brain injury.
Basal ganglia: Their role in complex cognitive procedures in experimental models and in clinical practice
TLDR
This article traces the scientific work that explores the role of BG in reinforcement learning, perceptual decision making, and other nonmotor pathways (speech fluency, cognition, attention and behaviour) and highlights the important role played by the BG networks in determining the development of a child's brain.
Procedural learning and striatofrontal dysfunction in Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Results confirm the involvement of striatofrontal circuits in procedural learning and indicate that the intervention of the frontal network may depend on the characteristics of the task.
Autobiographical Planning and the Brain: Activation and Its Modulation by Qualitative Features
TLDR
Autobiographical planning was found to engage the default network, including medial-temporal lobe and midline structures, and executive control regions in lateral pFC and parietal cortex and caudate, and recruited both default and frontoparietal brain regions.
Reward-related Reversal Learning after Surgical Excisions in Orbito-frontal or Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex in Humans
TLDR
The results show that the orbital prefrontal cortex is required bilaterally for monitoring changes in the reward value of stimuli and using this to guide behavior in the task; whereas the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, if it produces deficits in thetask, does so for reasons related to executive functions, such as the control of attention.
An fMRI study of planning-related brain activity in patients with moderately advanced multiple sclerosis
TLDR
In MS patients with moderate disability and structural damage, the pattern and extent of brain activation during planning were maintained despite poorer performance, and the failure to do so in this group may reflect exhaustion of adaptive mechanisms.
An analysis of rat prefrontal cortex in mediating executive function
TLDR
The data suggest that there is subregional specificity within the PFC of rats, monkey and humans and there are parallel cognitive functions of the different subregions of the P FC in rats, monkeys and humans.

Dopamine-Dependent Frontostriatal Planning Deficits in Early Parkinson's Disease
Three groups of medicated and nonmedicated patients at different stages of Parkinson's disease and a group of neurosurgical patients with localized frontal lobe excisions were assessed on 2 novel

TLDR
The results of this meta‐analysis suggest that lateral regions of the frontal lobe are not functionally organized according to stimulus modality, as has been widely assumed, but that specific regions within the dorsolateral or ventrolateral frontal cortex make identical functional contributions to both spatial and non‐spatial working memory.
Planning and Spatial Working Memory: a Positron Emission Tomography Study in Humans
TLDR
Findings further implicate frontostriatal circuitry in high‐level planning and provide evidence for functionally distinct contributions from ventral and dorsolateral frontal regions to spatial working memory.
Frontal lobe dysfunction in Parkinson's disease. The cortical focus of neostriatal outflow.
TLDR
The validity of an outflow model in predicting the consequences of caudate nucleus dysfunction was supported and a small cluster of deficits emerged, interpreted as reflecting impairment in the ability to spontaneously generate efficient strategies when relying on self-directed task-specific planning.
Evidence for a two-stage model of spatial working memory processing within the lateral frontal cortex: a positron emission tomography study.
TLDR
P positron emission tomography with magnetic resonance imaging is used to demonstrate the existence of two functionally distinct subdivisions of the lateral frontal cortex, which may subserve different aspects of spatial working memory.
Executive and mnemonic functions in early Huntington's disease.
TLDR
Patients with early Huntington's disease were found to have a wide range of cognitive impairments encompassing both visuospatial memory and executive functions, a pattern distinct from those seen in other basal ganglia disorders.
Dissociation of human mid-dorsolateral from posterior dorsolateral frontal cortex in memory processing.
TLDR
These findings provide direct evidence that, just as the monkey brain, the human lateral frontal cortex is functionally heterogeneous and that comparable anatomical areas underlie similar functions in the two species.
Planning and spatial working memory following frontal lobe lesions in man
TLDR
Patients with unilateral or bilateral frontal lobe excisions were compared with age and IQ matched controls on a computerized battery of tests of spatial working memory and planning, revealing an impairment of higher cognitive functioning following frontal lobe damage.
Double dissociations of memory and executive functions in working memory tasks following frontal lobe excisions, temporal lobe excisions or amygdalo-hippocampectomy in man.
TLDR
The data are discussed in terms of the relative contributions of "executive' and "mnemonic' mechanisms to the contrasting, material dependent deficits observed in the frontal and temporal lobe groups.
Prefrontostriatal connections in relation to cortical architectonic organization in rhesus monkeys
TLDR
Investigation of prefrontostriatal connections in rhesus monkeys using the autoradiographic technique shows that the main connections from the prefrontal cortex to the striatum are to the head and body of the caudate nucleus, which seems to reflect the architectonic organization of the cortex.
