The Prefrontal Cortex Of The Brain

Recommended Posts

"This brain region has been implicated in planning complex cognitive behavior,

personality expression, decision making and moderating social behavior. [1] The basic activity of this brain region is consideredto be orchestration of thoughts and actions in accordance with internal goals."

" The prefrontal cortex is highly interconnected with much of the brain, including extensive connections with other cortical regions, as well as subcortical areas. The dorsal prefrontal cortex is especially interconnectedwithbrain regions involved with attention, cognition and action, [12] while the ventral prefrontal cortex interconnects with brain regions involved with emotion. [13] The prefrontal cortex also receives inputs from the brainstem arousal systems, and its function is particularly

dependent on its neurochemical environment. "

--the brainstem regulates autonomic function.

Perhaps a defect, even chemical or in relation to poor blood flow, in this part of the brain relates to our cognitive issues
