Abstract

This article summarizes the current theories regarding the locations and functions of the three primary frontal lobe circuits. It forms the framework for structuring functional magnetic resonance imaging investigations. It can be used to assist in (a) detecting subtle lesions of the frontal circuits and (b)applying the current theories of neuropsychiatry to assess prognosis and to plan rehabilitation.
