  • effects of frontal damage can be a dramatic change in social behavior

  • damage here can cause quite dramatic changes, like mood swings, changes in personality and behavior that's socially inappropriate

  • collects information from other parts of the brain and within the frontal lobe and guides (hopefully) good and balanced decisions
