The Neurobiology of the Prefrontal Cortex

Anatomy, Evolution, and the Origin of Insight

Richard E. Passingham, Steven P. Wise, Richard E. Passingham, and Steven P. Wise

  • Uses a comparative approach, combining evidence from humans and monkeys - from this readers will learn about the evolutionary history of the prefrontal cortex.
  • Adopts a multidisciplinary approach, combining evidence from anatomy, cell recording, imaging, and lesion effects, enabling understanding the broad scope of data on the function of the primate prefrontal cortex.
  • Based on the anatomy of the prefrontal cortex helping people to understand the connections of the prefrontal cortex and their importance to its function.
  • Advances a testable proposal, examining ideas about experiments for future exploration of the prefrontal cortex.
