@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaNPE -> BrainRegionNPE_NC_PMC_CFEF

This page covers biological details of component Caudal Frontal Eye Field. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Cerebral Cortex -> Anterior Lobe (NC.LOBE.ANT) -> Premotor Cortex (NC.PMC) -> Frontal Eye Field (NMA.NC.PMC.FEF) -> Caudal Frontal Eye Field (NPE.NC.PMC.CFEF) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: cortex
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Neocortical Brain - Unimodal Execution Area (NPE)
  • Area circuit: Cortical Vision Control (CVC)
  • Brodmann ID: 08
  • Role: cortex.generic
  • Function: Head and eye movements toward visual stimuli
  • Notes to function:
    • shorter saccades
