Prefrontal Cortex MeSH Descriptor Data 2024

MeSH Heading
Prefrontal Cortex
Tree Number(s)
Unique ID
RDF Unique Identifier
Scope Note
The rostral part of the frontal lobe, bounded by the inferior precentral fissure in humans, which receives projection fibers from the MEDIODORSAL NUCLEUS OF THE THALAMUS. The prefrontal cortex receives afferent fibers from numerous structures of the DIENCEPHALON; MESENCEPHALON; and LIMBIC SYSTEM as well as cortical afferents of visual, auditory, and somatic origin.
