Prefrontal cortex output circuits guide reward seeking through divergent cue encoding

Neurons that project from the prefrontal cortex to either the nucleus accumbens or paraventricular thalamus receive different inputs, differentially encode reward-predictive cues, and have opposing ef...

New insights into the roles of different subareas in the prefrontal cortex

Whether the brain responds to an external stimulus or not depends significantly on the balance between areas of excitation and inhibition in the prefrontal cortex (PFC). Synaptic connections in the fr...

Separate elements of episodic memory subserved by distinct hippocampal–prefrontal connections

Episodic memory involves encoding an event's temporal and spatial context. The authors show that temporal information is mediated by a direct projection from the dorsal CA1 field of the hippocampus to...

Manipulating fear associations via optogenetic modulation of amygdala inputs to prefrontal cortex

Fear-related disorders are thought to reflect strong and persistent fear associations. The authors show that optogenetic high-frequency stimulation of direct amygdala inputs to the prefrontal cortex c...

New study identifies region of brain responsible for conditioned fear memory.

Despite the global medical community’s understanding of the significance of the prefrontal cortex in the consolidation of long-term memories, its role in the encoding of long-term memory remain...

Prefrontal cortex: Down in front

Prefrontal cortical control of a brainstem social behavior circuit

The authors describe cortical projections mediating the modulation of social behavior. Neural projections from the medial prefrontal cortex to the dorsal periaqueductal gray play a critical role in th...

Metabolic disturbances due to a high-fat diet in a non-insulin-resistant animal model.

Shift workers have metabolic changes more often than day workers. It is also known that night workers prefer foods high in saturated fat. Such data suggest that shift workers are prone to cardiovascul...

Shift workers have a similar diet quality but higher energy intake than day workers.

Shift work is associated with adverse health outcomes, and an unhealthy diet may be a contributing factor. We compared diet quantity and quality between day and shift workers, and studied exposure-res...

How the prefrontal executive got its stripes.

Pathways from cortical and subcortical structures give the prefrontal cortex a panoramic view of the sensory environment and the internal milieu of motives and drives. The prefrontal cortex also recei...

Impulsive-antisocial psychopathic traits linked to increased volume and functional connectivity within prefrontal cortex.

Psychopathy is a personality disorder characterized by callous lack of empathy, impulsive antisocial behavior, and criminal recidivism. Studies of brain structure and function in psychopathy have freq...

The Distributed Nature of Working Memory.

Studies in humans and non-human primates have provided evidence for storage of working memory contents in multiple regions ranging from sensory to parietal and prefrontal cortex. We discuss potential ...
