From perception to action: temporal integrative functions of prefrontal and parietal neurons.
TLDR
A visuomotor task that dissociated the perceptual and executive aspects of the perception-action cycle in both space and time provides physiological evidence for the role of a prefrontal-parietal network in the integration of perception with action across time.
Prefrontal Cortex Function in the Representation of Temporally Complex Events
TLDR
The present experiments show that the representation of serially presented compound stimuli depends on the interaction of prefrontal cortex and inferior temporal cortex, which suggests that prefrontal–temporal disconnection impairs a wide variety of learning tasks because in those tasks monkeys lay down similar temporally complex representations.
Prefrontal cortex lesions augment the location-related firing properties of area TE/perirhinal cortex neurons in a working memory task.
TLDR
It is suggested that prefrontal cortex normally modulates the transmission and/or processing of spatial information in area TE/PRC during a working memory task and this finding has implications for the understanding of prefrontal-temporal involvement in memory and cognitive disorders.

Selective Roles for Hippocampal, Prefrontal Cortical, and Ventral Striatal Circuits in Radial-Arm Maze Tasks With or Without a Delay
TLDR
Functional interactions between the hippocampus, the prefrontal cortex, and the ventral striatum in rats during the performance of delayed and nondelayed spatially cued radial-arm maze tasks suggest that different aspects of spatially mediated behavior are subserved by separate, distributed limbic–cortical–striatal networks.
Functional connectivity during working memory maintenance
TLDR
Findings support the notion that the coordinated functional interaction between nodes of a widely distributed network underlies the active maintenance of a perceptual representation.
The Effect of Disruption of Prefrontal Cortical Function with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation on Visual Working Memory
TLDR
The results suggest that the IFG is involved in determining the task-relevance of visual input and communicating that information to a network of regions involved in further processing during VWM.

TLDR
The data do not support a clear-cut topographic separation of visual functions within the inferotmeporal cortex, however, neurons that appear to participate in visual memory, either exclusively or in addition to other functions, are concentrated in the cortex of the lower banks of the superior temporal sulcus.

TLDR
The FC-induced decrements in proportion of correct responses suggest a faster loss from short-term memory of both spatial and nonspatial information.

TLDR
A previous investigation showed that bilateral or unilateral cooling of the pre-frontal cortical convexity produces marked and reversible deficits of performance in animals trained at the direct-method version of the delayed-response test, so the same test was adopted for the present study.
