Abstract

The prefrontal cortex has a vital role in effective, organized behaviour, Both functional neuroimaging in humans and electrophysiology in awake monkeys indicate that a fundamental principle of prefrontal function might be adaptive neural coding - in large regions of the prefrontal cortex, neurons adapt their properties to carry specifically information that is relevant tocurrent concerns, producing a dense, distributed representation of relatedinputs, actions, rewards and other information. A model based on such adaptive coding integrates the role of the prefrontal cortex in working memory attention and control. Adaptive coding points to new perspectives on several basic questions, including mapping of cognitive to neurophysiological functions, the influences of task content and difficulty; and the nature of frontal lobe specializations.
