Function and localization within rostral prefrontal cortex (area 10)

P. W Burgess, S. J Gilbert, I. Dumontheil
2007 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
Third, we examine predictions about behaviour-activation patterns within rostral PFC that follow from the hypothesis.  ...  We propose that rostral prefrontal cortex (PFC; approximating area 10) supports a cognitive system that facilitates either stimulus-oriented (SO) or stimulus-independent (SI ) attending.  ...  Rostral PFC regions are hypothesized to support a system that biases the flow of information between basic systems and central representations (i.e. equivalent to the adjustment of the position of the  ...

2006 Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance  
Medial rostral PFC activation was observed in the baseline task and in a condition requiring strong engagement with external stimuli, relative to 2 conditions with a greater requirement for stimulus-independent  ...  Thus, at least under certain circumstances, medial rostral PFC appears to support attention toward the external environment, facilitating performance in situations that do not require extensive processing  ...  biasing of the attentional balance between current sensory input and internally generated thought.  ...
