Complementary and temporal prefrontal-subthalamic network activity influences cognitive control

Takeaway

  • The subthalamic nucleus and medial prefrontal cortex communicate and coordinate their activity through theta and beta power, contributing to cognitive control.

Why this matters

  • Cognition can be negatively impacted by network disruption; this study sheds light on the complementary and temporally sequenced activity by the subthalamic nucleus and medial prefrontal cortex in supporting different roles during cognitive control.
