1995; Mesulam 1990; Posner and Petersen 1990). However, the precise contribution of this region to this broad class of processes has not been well understood. Two broad theories of ACC function during executive control have been proposed. The first, based upon the results of functional neuroimaging studies, is that the ACC serves a strategic function related to the top-down control of attention. This highly influential theory has been invoked to account for the ACC activity observed in functional brain imaging studies during a wide range of demanding cognitive tasks.

In parallel with these developments, a whole new field of neuroscience—cognitive neuroscience—has emerged, and rapid advances have been made in our understanding of the neural basis of human cognition. This field focuses on how cells and systems in the brain interact to perform specific cognitive functions. , Gazzaniga et al. 1998; Posner and Petersen 1990) at the same time that physiologists interested in the functional significance of brain activity at the single neuron level began using cognitive psychological methods and theories to advance their research (Fuster 1988; GoldmanRakic 1991).
