Healthy subjects activated most vigorously in the anterior portion of the left inferior frontal gyrus, a locus equivalent to what researchers call Brodmann's areas 45 and 47 (which, incidentally, is just anterior-inferior to the classical Broca's area).
observed in six participants that regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in the right dorsal ACC (Brodmann's areas 32 and 24) and right posterior insular cortex covaried directly with mean arterial pressure (MAP) during physical and mental challenge [36].
We thank Heba Lakany for her help in running some fMRI sessions and Heather Whalley for assistance with mapping areas of activation to Talairach coordinates and Brodmann's areas. ES and HL are supported by a Research Development Grant from Scottish Higher Education Funding Council (SHEFC), which also provided scanner time and fMRI experimental equipment through the Center for Functional Imaging Studies.
