Operational Identity of the Prefrontal Cortex

The Prefrontal Cortex is home of Subjective responses.

It is the ability for Information-Retention, and for giving Directives upon that information.

The Prefrontal Cortex provides the empty Container-Space in which the Anterior Insula's Detail-Awareness, Considering, Understanding, and Comprehension can breathe. It is like a papyrus, and the Anterior Insula a quill and inspiration.

Its space is not one-dimensional, and it is responsible for enabling depth of detail-perception as well as quantity of details, and also length of time in which details can be in-taken to contribute toward perception. The Detail-Awareness comes from the Anterior Insula, whose output is received by the Prefrontal Cortex.

The Prefrontal Cortex is conventionally considered responsible for Critical-Thinking, but this is half-False.

There can not be Truth (reasoning) and Choice (determining) from the same region, because the two are dependent upon antithetical circumstances: One must have connections between its data to produce context for understanding something as truth, while the other must have no connection between its data in order to be able to make decisions based on, but independent from data. One must be Value-Based, the other Value-Less.

Critical-Thinking is fully-reliant upon Anterior Insula Detail-Awareness and Comprehension before Determining gets its moment. Critical-Thinking is all three of these things acting together.

And Detail-Awareness and Comprehension employment depends on Prefrontal Cortex dopamine availability. Development, and use of Detail-Awareness are slightly different things.

The Prefrontal Cortex and the Anterior Insula are an operational team, with antithetical responsibilities.

The Prefrontal Cortex does not think (where thinking is contemplating), it subjectively reacts to thought in the likeness of often-dynamic If / Then statements upon Anterior Insula conditions, with Schematics of these If / Then statements creating response behavioural patterns.

'Thought' from region is falsified, imagined, delusioned - and there is a lot of false-thinking coming from it in the world. Most people actually form invalid If / Then thought schematics and live life through them, believing they are actually thinking - it's the norm.

There doesn't need to be an 'If' for a 'Then', meaning 'Do' is also enactable - but takes more effort, which amounts to more regional dopamine-availability necessitated.

Dopamine in this region is uniquely subject to willed-regulation - something I am not going to detail in this post. Lower dopamine equates lower information retention, and that retention is Working-Memory.

When someone has difficulty with attention and focus, increasing this region's dopamine will resolve it - if adrenaline's factoring doesn't negate any supplementation efforts.

When the Prefrontal Cortex receives Anterior Insula output, it is like it is Importing or Cloning parts of the Anterior Insula - parts which it can then subjectively decide upon.

A more greatly developed Anterior Insula requires a higher dopamine level in the Prefrontal Cortex to handle, cope, and work with the information it transmits to it, and to resolve any experienced challenges from that Anterior Insula's considering.

When there are threatening problems in the Anterior Insula's considering, the Prefrontal Cortex' dopamine is essential to be able to intercede and will cessation of troubling operations - done through an If / Then, or Do directive that cancels processes. Lower Prefrontal Cortex dopamine equates lower ability to make decisions and take control within the mind - and this is the nature of Mental Stress ailment.

Regional capability is diminished and also lost when its regulated dopamine becomes low
