Visual spatial processing and object processing rely on dorsal and ventral cortical pathways, respectively. Whether this functional segregation exists in the prefrontal cortex is currently a source of debate. Using functional MRI (fMRI), there has been some evidence that the superior frontal sulcus (within dorsal prefrontal cortex) is specialised for spatial working memory, while ventral prefrontal cortex is associated with object working memory. Employing beta-weight analysis, Postle, Berger… CONTINUE READING
