Frontal Lobe

A Look Inside Mental Illness

The frontal lobe is positioned at the frontmost region of the cerebral cortex and are involved in movement, decision-making, problem solving, and planning. There are three main divisions of the frontal lobes: the prefrontal cortex (personality expression and cognitive behavior planning), the premotor area and the motor area (contain nerves that control the execution of voluntary muscle movement). The most well-known mental illness associated with the frontal lobe is EDS. Those with this illness usually make poor decisions and not realize it's not acceptable.
