Most brain activity occurs in both sides of the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex, which is linked to response inhibition.
Evidence also suggests that the right inferior frontal cortex (IFC) plays a specialized role in response inhibition.
Persons with schizophrenia also tend to demonstrate deficits in response inhibition and cognitive flexibility.
They also found that children who completed the tasks with increasing difficulty showed substantially more improvements in visuo-spatial working memory, nonverbal reasoning and response inhibition.
Alcohol appears to impair the capacity of working memory to modulate response inhibition.
In other words, the fundamental deficit was the same in animals and people: a failure of response inhibition.
There is some evidence to support deficits in response inhibition as one such marker.
The strongest effects were on measures of response inhibition, vigilance, working memory, and planning.
The study observed for improvement of response inhibitions between subjects that had received treatment versus a group receiving a placebo.
The orbitofrontal cortex is concerned with response inhibition, impulse control, and social behaviour.
