The Frontal Lobes

Neuropsychiatry, Neuropsychology, and Behavioral Neurology
  • Rhawn Joseph
Part of the Critical Issues in Neuropsychology book series (CINP)


The frontal lobes serve as the “senior executive” of the brain; through the assimilation and fusion of perceptual, volitional, cognitive, and emotional processes, it modulates and shapes character and personality. When damaged, the result can be excessive or diminished cortical and behavioral arousal, disintegration of personality and emotional functioning, difficulty planning or initiating activity, abnormal attention and ability to concentrate, severe apathy or euphoria, disinhibition, and a reduced ability to monitor and control one’s thoughts, speech, and actions. Paralysis of the extremities, severe unilateral neglect of visual—auditory space, or, conversely, compulsive utilization of tools or other objects can occur.
