Reviewers's note

From the clinical perspective it is usually assumed that BA11 (base of the frontal pole) is related with something that could be termed “personality integrity.”  Personality changes observed in traumatic brain injury individuals are supposed to result from damage of this orbital frontal area. Of course, “personality” (i.e., style of behavior) is an extremely difficult concept  to approach in fMRI experiments. Nonetheless, it could be conjectured that BA11 participate in some individual’s “style of reacting” or “emotional idiosyncratic style”. In the available fMRI reports there is some paucity in the analysis of the emotional components of behavior. Only one study partially approaches this question (“decision making involving reward”)
