The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is the seat of higher level control operations, with recognition and working memory processes critical to those operations. While not strictly organized by the principle of localization, certain functions are clearly more associated with one region than another within PFC dynamic systems. We set out to test the hypothesis that active visual memory comparison (making judgments of novelty) was most associated with the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex (VLPFC), while the… CONTINUE READING
