FIGURE 14.2

A highly simplified illustration of network connections between PCX, OB, and AON. The blue lines represent forward projecting axons. Green lines represent feedback connections. The intracortical association fibers are shown in black. The association fibers in APCx project both rostrally and caudally, whereas in PPCx they tend to project caudally. These network connections, as well as others, suggest different processing functions in APCx vs PPCx.
