Abstract
The inferior frontal junction (IFJ) is a brain region located at the junction of the inferior frontal sulcus and the inferior precentral sulcus. In a number of functional imaging studies (for review, see Brass et al., 2005), we have found evidence for the involvement of the IFJ in cognitive control processes. In particular, we have shown that the IFJ was commonly activated in a within-subject study employing the Stroop task, a task-switching paradigm, and a verbal n-back task (Derrfuss et al., 2004). Here, we investigate the consistency of IFJ involvement in color-word Stroop and switching paradigms by employing a quantitative meta-analytic approach.
