Both the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex (vlPFC) and the dorsal premotor cortex (PMd) are implicated in conditional visuomotor behavior, in which it is required to determine an action based on an associated visual object. However, virtually no direct projections appear to exist between vlPFC and PMd. Here we provide evidence that vlPFC outflow is directed toward PMd in a multisynaptic fashion through the dorsal prefrontal cortex (dPFC) and the dorsomedial motor cortex (dmMC).
