Pre-Frontal Damage

The best current popular treatment of prefrontal damage is Damasio's 
book "Descartes' Error."  It reviews the literature well and makes a 
good case for the importance of the ventromedial frontal lobe in 
emotion.  I also suggest a reveiw article I wrote several years ago 
entitled "Prefrontal cortical control of the autonomic nervous system: 
anatomical and physiological observations" in Progess in Brain Research, 
vol 85:147166, 1990.
