Motor impulsivity and the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex

Functional magnetic resonance imaging in a Go/Nogo task was employed to investigate the relationship between trait impulsivity and brain activation during motor response inhibition. We found a positive correlation between motor impulsivity and activation of bilateral ventrolateral prefrontal cortex during successful inhibitions, which suggests stronger recruitment to maintain task performance.
