Information processing in the medial frontal cortex is often said to be modulated in pathological conditions or by individual traits. This has been observed in neuroimaging and event-related potential studies centered in particular on midcingulate cortex (MCC) functions. This region of the brain is characterized by considerable intersubject morphological variability. Whereas in a subset of hemispheres only a single cingulate sulcus (cgs) is present, a majority of hemispheres exhibit an…

Local Morphology Predicts Functional Organization of Experienced Value Signals in the Human Orbitofrontal Cortex
Insight is provided into the anatomo-functional parcellation of the anteroposterior OFC gradient observed for secondary versus primary rewards because there is a direct relationship between value signals at the time of reward outcome and unique OFC sulci locations.
The Human Ventromedial Prefrontal Cortex: Sulcal Morphology and Its Influence on Functional Organization
It is shown that two supplementary medial sulci predominantly determine the organization of the vmPFC, which in turn affects the location of the functional peak of activity in this region, which shows that taking into account the variability in sulcal patterns might be essential to guide the interpretation of neuroimaging studies of the human brain and of thevmPFC in particular.
Morphological and functional variability in central and subcentral motor cortex of the human brain
A robust relationship between morphology of the central and subcentral sulcal segments and movement of different effectors is demonstrated and a surface registration based on sulcal labels indicated that such anatomical information can improve the alignment of functional data for group studies.
Midcingulate Motor Map and Feedback Detection: Converging Data from Humans and Monkeys.
Evidence is provided from recent experiments in humans and from a meta-analysis of monkey data that MCC feedback-related activity is generated in the rostral cingulate premotor area by specific body maps directly related to the modality of feedback.
Variations of cingulate sulcal organization and link with cognitive performance
The sulcal morphological organization in this region in twins and non-twin siblings, as well as in control subjects, is analysed and it is found that relationships between sulcal organization and performance in cognitive, motor, and affective tests depend on the twin status.
The postcentral sulcal complex and the transverse postcentral sulcus and their relation to sensorimotor functional organization
The sulcal morphology provides an improved framework for functional assignments in individual subjects and there is a tight relationship between sensorimotor representations of different body parts and specific segments of the postcentral sulcus.


Human cingulate and paracingulate sulci: pattern, variability, asymmetry, and probabilistic map.
The results revealed considerable variability in the location of some of the above morphological features and a striking hemispheric asymmetry in the prominence of the PCS.
Local Morphology Predicts Functional Organization of the Dorsal Premotor Region in the Human Brain
The results demonstrate that visuomotor hand conditional activity and the frontal eye field lie within distinct parts of the superior precentral sulcus, revealing an organization of the human premotor cortex consistent with that observed in experimental studies in the monkey.
A Specific Brain Structural Basis for Individual Differences in Reality Monitoring
Voxel-based morphometry revealed a significant negative correlation between anterior PFC gray matter and reality monitoring performance, providing evidence that individual differences in introspective abilities like reality monitoring may be associated with specific structural variability in the PFC.
An anatomical landmark for the supplementary eye fields in human revealed with functional magnetic resonance imaging.
It is found that, despite a discrepancy of >2 cm found in the standardized Talairach coordinates, the location of this SEF-region could be precisely and reliably described by referring to a sulcal landmark found in each individual: the upper part of the paracentral sulcus.
Variability of the paracingulate sulcus and morphometry of the medial frontal cortex: Associations with cortical thickness, surface area, volume, and sulcal depth
Evidence is provided for a complex interhemispheric relationship between sulcal variability and cortical morphometry, and it is indicated that such relationships may be important for understanding individual differences in cognitive abilities.
Characterizing Evoked Hemodynamics with fMRI
Using this approach, the anterior cingulate differentiates, in terms of its response, between two motor tasks that did and did not require sustained attention, and it is suggested that these demonstration results point to the possibility of making greater use of the temporal resolution afforded by fast fMRI techniques.
Neuroimaging evidence of the anatomo-functional organization of the human cingulate motor areas.
The results demonstrate the location and organization of the 3 cingulate motor areas in the human brain and suggest a well-preserved organization of these motor areas from the monkey to the humanbrain.
