But that explanation would not be apparent until two decades after the accident, and it became vaguely acceptable only in this century.

But nothing could be further from the truth, as Harlow himself realized.

Whatever the answer, by what plausible means can destruction of a brain region change personality? If there are specific regions in the frontal lobe, what are they made of, and how do they operate in an intact brain? Are they some kind of "center" for social behavior? Are they modules selected in evolution, filled with problem-solving algo­ rithms ready to tell us how to reason and make decisions? How do these modules, if that is what they are, interact with the environment during development to permit normal reasoning and decision mak­ ing?

All gray matter below the cortex (nuclei, large and small, and the cerebellar cortex) is known as subcortical. The evolutionarily mod­ ern part of the cerebral cortex is called the neocortex. Most of the evolutionarily older cortex is known as limbic cortex (see below). Throughout the book I will usually refer either to cerebral cortex (meaning neocortex), or to limbic cortex and its specific parts. Figure 2-5 depicts a frequently used map of the cerebral cortex based on its varied cytoarchitectonic areas (regions of distinctive Figure 2-5' A map ofthe main brain areas identified by Brodmann in his studies ofcellular architecture (cytoarchitectonics).
