Normal behavior is characterized by a constant circular flow of influences from sensory receptors to motor effectors, to the physical environment, back to sensory receptors, and so on. This cybernetic cycle of influences (the perception-action cycle) governs all sequences of behavior to make them adaptive and goal directed. In the primate (including the human primate), considerable evidence indicates that dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is essential for the bridging of temporal gaps in the… CONTINUE READING
