Using T1- and T2-weighted structural MRI scans, the researchers measured the cortical thickness of six individual regions of the frontal lobe as well as the anterior cingulate gyrus.
150 years later, Damasio and his collaborators published a study on Gage's exhumed skull and proposed a trajectory of the injury through the left hemisphere, through the anterior half of the orbitofrontal cortex (Brodmann areas 11 and 12), through the anterior mesial frontal cortices (Brodmann areas 8 to 10, 32) and the most anterior region of the cingulate gyrus (Brodmann area 24).
ii) Pattern T2 shows FDDNP PET signal in all subcortical areas analyzed in this study, in all limbic medial temporal lobe areas [amygdala and medial temporal lobe (MTL); hippocampus, entorhinal cortex, parahippocampalgyrus)], and in parts of the frontal cortex, including anterior cingulate gyrus (ACG).

Whole brain blood flow also improved significantly in the exercise group and was driven by increased flow in regions particularly associated with aging and Alzheimer's: the superior frontal cortex, posterior cingulate, and cingulate gyrus.
The anterior salience network (composed of nodes including bilateral middle frontal gyrus, middle cingulate gyrus, and insula) reflects bottom-up appetitive drive.
Obese women have higher rates of metabolism in certain areas of the brain, including the posterior cingulate gyrus, which is linked to the development of AD.
