Medial frontal cortex (MFC)
Functional organization of the medialfrontal cortex regards medialfrontal cortex as a collective term that "describe cortex dorsal and rostral to the corpus callosum" and furthermore writes:
- "In the primate brain, it is usually taken to include the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) as well as several areas in the more dorsal superior frontal gyrus, such as the pre-supplementary motor area (pre-SMA), the supplementary motor area (SMA) and the supplementary eye fields (SEF)"
In Human cerebral cortex: localization, parcellation, and morphometry with magnetic resonance imaging "frontomedial cortex" is grouped under "medial surface" in the Frontal lobe part together with supplementary motor cortex (i.e., "frontalmedial cortex" and "supplementary motor cortex" are regarded as separate areas). Also "frontomedial cortex" is regarded as separate from the subcallosal cortex, paracingulate cortex and anterior cingulate gyrus.
