CA3 and CA1 cortices
Lesions of the DLPFC produce ________________.
inability to rely on intention (also called "environmental dependency) and the inability to modulate attention (leading to perseveration)
Lesions to the _____________ produce the lack of response to the Iowa gambling test.
The anterior cingulate cortex is Brodmann area ________.

Describe the layout of the entorhinal cortex, the subiculum, areas CA 1/3, and the dentate gyrus.
As you follow the hippocampus through its terminal swirl, you first approach the entorhinal cortex, then the subiculum, then CA 1, then CA 3, and finally the dentate gyrus.
