@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaNDM -> BrainRegionNDM_NC_AL_DMPFC

This page covers biological details of component Dorsomedial 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) -> Orbitomedial Prefrontal Cortex (NC.AL.OMPFC) -> Medial Prefrontal Cortex (NC.AL.MPFC) -> Dorsomedial Prefrontal Cortex (NDM.NC.AL.DMPFC) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: cortex
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Neocortical Brain - Decision Making Area (NDM)
  • Area circuit: Motivatory Associations (MAS)
  • Brodmann ID: 09
  • Role: cortex.generic
  • Function: Ongoing Extroverted Attention to Select Appropriate Response
  • Notes to function:
    • upper MPFC, primary connections to the cingulate and the motor and premotor cortices
