This chapter examines prefrontal correlates of cognitive control and performance monitoring and attempts to relate neurophysiological data to developments in computational modelling. The analysis of the prefrontal cortex of monkeys reveals the differential roles of dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), dorsal anterior cingulate cortex (dACC), and orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) in detecting and evaluating outcomes, controlling and planning behaviour, as well as in representing predictions about potential outcomes. The findings also suggest the important role of neuromodulatory systems in adaptation of behaviour and in managing behavioural strategies.

Keywords:   prefrontal cortex, neurophysiology, computational modelling, DLPFC, dACC, orbitofrontal cortex, behavioural adaptation, neuromodulatory systems
