YouTubing Brodmann Area 9

Derived from Gray’s Anatomy 20th Edition 1918 Lithograph Reproduction, Public Domain

Detailed here are the results of a search on YouTube looking to identify videos relating to Brodmann Area 9. Initially the search terms ‘Brodmann Area 9’ and ‘Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex’ (DLPFC) were used. However this needed to be expanded with the search term ‘Prefrontal Cortex’. Unfortunately this is a very broad term as the Prefrontal Cortex encompasses Brodmann Areas 8-11 and 44-47 and so the results of this search are not always relevant to the search question. The search identified one video which was a lighthearted rap about the brain. There is a very short segment on the DLPFC but the video is probably aimed at those with little background knowledge of the brain although it might still be used to supplement teaching in this area. This brief video shows interconnected areas in the Prefrontal Cortex (PFC) and cerebellum although there is no labelling on the image and I wasn’t clear on how the image was constructed.  A study looking at the involvement of PFC in memory formation is discussed in this video. In this video author Matthew Segall discusses the Prefrontal Cortex in the context of the relationship between emotions and reasoning which fits into some of his other interesting philosophy that he disseminates through the medium of YouTube. Dr Earl Miller gives an interesting overview of the Prefrontal Cortex in this video. There were perhaps more interesting videos returned from a search for frontal lobe but as this term is extremely broad it moves further away from the original question.
