Evidence from lesion and neuroimaging studies suggests that the frontal lobes can be fractionated into different frontal subregions with distinct functional domains. Some of the evidence to support frontal lobe fractionation is described, and the potential impact on neuropsychological assessment is discussed. It is important for clinicians to be aware that different frontal tasks might tap processes associated with distinct regions of the frontal lobes.
