Resolving response, decision, and strategic control: evidence for a functional topography in dorsomedial prefrontal cortex.
(J Neurosci, 2009-10-21)
The dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (DMPFC) plays a central role in aspects of cognitive control and decision making. Here, we provide evidence for an anterior-to-posterior topography within the DMPFC using tasks that evoke ...
