This chapter reviews the current neuropsychological and physiological evidence linking lateral and orbital prefrontal cortex (PFC) to human cognition and social interchange in an attempt to provide a summary of much of the work presented in this book and elsewhere. It begins with a review of the findings concerning the role of lateral PFC in executive control of cognition, and then discusses the relevant literature on the contributions of orbital PFC to social and emotional control.

Keywords:   prefrontal cortex, human cognition, social interchange, emotional control
