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...

Infants use prefrontal cortex in learning

Researchers have long thought that the region of the brain involved in some of the highest forms of cognition and reasoning – the prefrontal cortex (PFC) – was too underdeveloped in young children...

JNeurosci: Highlights from the Nov. 16 issue

(Society for Neuroscience) When you recite a phone number over and over while you search for a pen and paper to write it down, you're relying on your working memory. Activity in an area of the brain's...

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...

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...

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 ...

Association between depressive symptoms and morningness-eveningness, sleep duration and rotating shift work in Japanese nurses.

Higher depressive symptoms have been reported in rotating shift workers compared with day workers. Depressive symptoms in adults who do not engage in night work have also been shown to be associated w...

Prefrontal cortical control of a brainstem social behavior circuit.

The prefrontal cortex helps adjust an organism's behavior to its environment. In particular, numerous studies have implicated the prefrontal cortex in the control of social behavior, but the neural ci...
