Betsy Murray and crew find evidence to resolve two different views of the function of the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC). One view is that the OFC provides inhibitory control and emotion regulation. The other view is that processes the value of things. They show that damage limited to the OFC does not affect inhibitory or emotional control, but damage to nearby fiber tracts do. There you go.
