We found that medial frontal cortex activity associated with action monitoring (detecting errors and behavioral conflict) depended on activity in the lateral prefrontal cortex. We recorded the error-related negativity (ERN), an event-related brain potential proposed to reflect anterior cingulate action monitoring, from individuals with lateral prefrontal damage or age-matched or young control participants. In controls, error trials generated greater ERN activity than correct trials. In… Expand
The relative involvement of anterior cingulate and prefrontal cortex in attentional control depends on nature of conflict.
TLDR
This work compares neural activity during incongruent Stroop trial types that produce conflict at different levels of processing to suggest the involvement of anterior cingulate and right prefrontal cortex in attentional control is primarily limited to situations of response conflict, while the involved of left prefrontal cortex extends to the occurrence of conflict at non-response levels. Expand
The Anterior Cingulate and Error Avoidance
TLDR
The results reveal that the functional role of the cingulate is not particular to errors but instead is related to an evaluative function concerned with on-line behavioral adjustment in the service of avoiding losses. Expand
The Role of the Medial Frontal Cortex in Cognitive Control
TLDR
New findings in cognitive neuroscience concerning cortical interactions that subserve the recruitment and implementation of cognitive control are evaluated, suggesting that monitoring-related pMFC activity serves as a signal that engages regulatory processes in the LPFC to implement performance adjustments. Expand
Medial prefrontal cell activity signaling prediction errors of action values
TLDR
Responses in medial prefrontal cells of monkeys learning arbitrary action-outcome contingencies may signal the direction and amount of error in prediction of values of executed actions to specify the adjustment in subsequent action selections. Expand
Watch out! Medial frontal cortex is activated by cues signaling potential changes in response demands
TLDR
It is proposed that the underlying basis for medial frontal activation in situations demanding ongoing monitoring of performance involves an increase in attention control, a factor common to all MFN paradigms. Expand
Posterior Medial Frontal Cortex Activity Predicts Post-Error Adaptations in Task-Related Visual and Motor Areas
TLDR
It is demonstrated that upon the occurrence of errors the pMFC selectively interacts with perceptual and motor regions and thereby drives attentional focusing toward task-relevant information and induces motor adaptation observed as post-error slowing. Expand
Individual differences in working memory capacity predict action monitoring and the error-related negativity.
TLDR
It is revealed that frontally mediated working memory capacity may alter error monitoring by the anterior cingulate cortex, with high spans showing a greater ERN than low spans, andindividual differences were observed in the posterror positivity, a response-locked ERP component associated with updating cognitive strategies, suggesting greater awareness of errors with increasedWorking memory capacity.

Interactions of focal cortical lesions with error processing: evidence from event-related brain potentials.
TLDR
Lesions of the lateral frontal cortex resulted in an abolition of the ERN and in a reduction of the error positivity in patient groups with different focal cortical lesions, according to a speeded flankers task. Expand
Anterior Cingulate Cortex, Conflict Monitoring, and Levels of Processing
TLDR
A highly specific contribution of the anterior cingulate cortex to executive functions is suggested, through the detection of conflicts occurring at later or response-related levels of processing. Expand
Error detection failures in schizophrenia: ERPs and FMRI.
TLDR
ERPs may be superior to fMRI for assessing error processing abnormalities in schizophrenia because (1) ERNs can be measured precisely without needing to control for the multiple comparisons of FMRI, and (2) ERPs have the temporal precision to detect transient activity necessary for error detection and on-the-fly behavioral adjustments.

The anterior cingulate is believed to play a crucial role in the regulation of thought and action. Recent evidence suggests that the anterior cingulate may play a role in the detection ofExpand
Response selection in the human anterior cingulate cortex
TLDR
It is reported that executive control processes of a patient with a focal right hemisphere anterior cingulate lesion were not compromised, but her performance level depended on the response modality used, and this provides neuropsychological evidence for functional specialization within the human ACC. Expand
Anterior cingulate cortex, error detection, and the online monitoring of performance.
TLDR
Results confirm that this region shows activity during erroneous responses, but activity was also observed in the same region during correct responses under conditions of increased response competition, which suggests that the ACC detects conditions under which errors are likely to occur rather than errors themselves. Expand
Action-Monitoring Dysfunction in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
TLDR
Electrophysiological evidence is reported suggesting that part of a hyperactive frontal-striatal-thalamic-frontal circuit is associated with the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder and part of this system monitors events and generates error signals when the events conflict with an individual's internal standards or goals. Expand
Conflict monitoring versus selection-for-action in anterior cingulate cortex
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging was used to measure brain activation during performance of a task where, for a particular subset of trials, the strength of selection-for-action is inversely related to the degree of response conflict, providing evidence in favour of the conflict-monitoring account of ACC function. Expand
Prefrontal and cingulate unit activity during timing behavior in the monkey
TLDR
Single unit activity was recorded from the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and the anterior cingulate cortex while monkeys were performing a modified differential reinforcement of long latencies (DRLL) task, which revealed a sustained change during delay and an abrupt cessation of change in firing at the time of response initiation. Expand
A PET study of word finding
TLDR
It is suggested that the superior temporal regions are the site of stored word representations and that inhibitory modulation of these areas by the left prefrontal cortex is the basis of intrinsic word generation. Expand
Mood and spatial memory: emotion and right hemisphere contribution to spatial cognition
TLDR
Normal university students examined to determine whether individual differences in mood and arousal levels would be related to performance on a spatial memory task, and a suggestion of right hemisphere sensitivity to mood in this normal sample was a tendency for the subjects high in Negative Arousal not to show the normal right hemisphere (left field) superiority for the spatial memorytask.

Changes in medial cortical blood flow with a stimulus-response compatibility task
TLDR
P positron emission tomography is used to measure blood flow changes in a stimulus-response compatibility task and reports significant activation in the cingulate sulcus and a correlation of activity in this region with faster response time for an incongruent stimulus- response task. Expand
Event-related brain potentials and error-related processing: an analysis of incorrect responses to go and no-go stimuli.
TLDR
Results indicate that the process manifested by the ERN is not dependent on immediate error correction, and other aspects of the data converge in suggesting that the ERn process is more closely related to error detection and that the connections between detection and remedial actions may depend on the task situation.
