Functional models of the frontal lobes suggest a rostro-caudal organization that is essential for goal-directed behaviour and cognitive control, in which higher processing-level anterior regions send control signals to lower processing-level posterior regions. Here we show that tractography can divide the frontal lobes into 12 regions organized in a rostro-caudal axis showing a gradient of cortical thickness, myelination and cell body density.
