WOROI: 27 - Medial frontal cortex

Part of the frontal lobe on the medial surface towards the cingulate gyrus. This is not to be confused with the middle frontal gyrus which is on the outer surface of the brain.


Variation: Medial surface of frontal lobe
Variation: Medial aspect of the frontal lobe

During presentation of happy facial expressions, we detected a signal increase predominantly in the left anterior cingulate gyrus, bilateral posterior cingulate gyri, medial frontal cortex and right supramarginal gyrus, brain regions previously implicated in visuospatial and emotion processing tasksMary L.

Areas preferentially active during encoding (relative to retrieval) included left superior frontal cortex, medial frontal cortex, left superior temporal cortex, posterior cingulate, left parahippocampal gyrus, and left inferior frontal gyrusK.
