Quick Reference

The lowest part of the prefrontal cortex on the medial or inner surfaces of both brain hemispheres, below the corpus callosum, corresponding to Brodmann areas 11, 12, 13, 14, and 47 (see illustration accompanying entry on Brodmann area), involved in sensations of pleasure and reinforcement (1), social skills, and physiological reactions implied by the somatic marker hypothesis. Also called the ventromedial prefrontal cortex. [From Latin venter, ventris the belly + medialis situated in the middle, from medius the middle + cortex bark or outer layer]
