frontal lobes are organized along their rostrocaudal axis to support hierarchical frontal networks interact via local and global hierarchical structure to support. An influential class of theory proposes that the frontal lobes are organized along their rostrocaudal axis to support hierarchical cognitive control. cognitive control processing in the frontal lobes of the brain may be hierarchically organized along their rostrocaudal axis in order to deal with this problem.

In general, as action goals become more abstract, the timescale of action that they govern increases. PFC frotal generally fire in response to more-abstract action rules. Hence, although having a structurally arrayed hierarchical organization is not a requirement for the control of complex sequential behaviourwhen such an architecture exists, the same action can be represented at different levels of abstraction.

Hierarchical Cognitive Control and the Functional Organization of the Frontal Cortex

Fiona McNab 11 Estimated Rotsrocaudal For non-contiguous regions, an asymmetry principle should apply. Rowe JB, et al. In this chapter, anatomists Petrides and Pandya report an extensive comparison of the architecture of the frontal cortex between monkeys and humans.

The frontopolar cortex and human cognition: The extent to which goals like making a sandwich are maintained over longer temporal gaps — whereas more concrete goals like slicing bread and spreading mayonnaise are being updated — is referred to as temporal abstraction. In the frontal cortex, this analysis identified a dorsal rostro-caudal network that closely corresponds to the gradient of rostro-caudal regions identified in association with hierarchical control.

Such a meta-rule, linking the context to a relevant set rostrocadal first order rules, would be a second order policy. Please review our privacy policy. By clicking accept or continuing to use the site, you agree to the terms outlined in our Privacy PolicyTerms of Serviceand Dataset License.

The network also included regions of medial frontal cortex, anterior insula, the head of the caudate nucleus and anterior inferior parietal lobule. Thus, this experiment permitted independent estimation of repetition priming at the item semantictask decision and response levels.
