This page covers biological details of component Lateral Mid-Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Cerebral Cortex -> Anterior Lobe (NC.LOBE.ANT) -> Prefrontal Cortex (NC.AL.PFC) -> Lateral Prefrontal Cortex (NC.AL.LPFC) -> Mid-Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex (NDM.NC.AL.DLPFC) -> Lateral Mid-Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex (NDM.NC.AL.DLPFCL) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: cortex
  • Brain area: Neocortical Brain - Decision Making Area
  • Brodmann ID: 46
