What does Medial Frontal Cortex Signal During Behavior? Insights from Behavioral Neurophysiology, Volume 161 addresses and highlights a question that has remained central to cognitive and systems neuroscience since its inception, namely, what does the medial frontal cortex do? With insights from 17 of the fields leading teams of scientists, this volume attempts to address this question covering several topics from what constitutes medial frontal cortex to how medial frontal cortex integrates a diverse array of sensory, cognitive, social, and motivational inputs to ultimately guide behavior.
- Comprises the perspectives of a diverse array of world-leading researchers in medial frontal cortex function
- Provides the latest theoretical and data-based evidence for the function of medial frontal cortex
- Presents the importance of systems-based neuroscience approaches to the understanding of medial frontal cortex function
