3 Reflections on ROBBIA
Mind and the Frontal Lobes

Tim Shallice

Oxford University Press

The ROBBIA set of studies (see Stuss & Alexander, 2007) on frontal lobe functions is discussed with respect to two main issues. The first concerns the neuropsychological group study methodology employed. This was to use anatomically-based groups with the anatomical criteria concerning the localisation of lesions for group inclusion being both coarse- and fine-grained. It also involves the use of a set of basically simple tasks, mainly reaction-time ones, which have similar input and output processes. Then other neuropsychological studies using more complex tasks are considered to assess whether one has converging evidence with the simpler tasks examined in ROBBIA. Concordance is generally obtained.

Keywords:   frontal lobes, lesions, neuropsychology, group study methodology, reaction times
