17.1 Introduction This chapter reviews recent evidence from our laboratory (and others) that suggests that the most anterior parts of the frontal lobes of the brain support cognitive processes which are critical to complex volitional behavior in humans. We conclude by proposing a simple preliminary hypothesis about the role of this region in cognition. The part of the frontal lobes that is foremost in the brain has many names. The most common of these are " anterior prefrontal cortex, " " the… CONTINUE READING
