However, another part of the brain, the orbital frontal cortex, determines whether or not people act on these cravings.
Neurosurgeons have discovered that when people are anxious they have increased levels of a number of chemicals in part of the brain called the orbital frontal cortex.
The brain of the insomniac remains more activated, even during sleep: Beta activity, which is associated with wakefulness, is increased over normal levels, and activity in the anterior cingulate and medial orbital frontal cortex, associated with alertness and attention, is higher.
Those ROIs, which included the right and left caudate nucleus, the thalamus, and the orbital frontal cortex, were chosen based on the neural systems model of alcoholism discussed in the previous sections of this article.
Furthermore, methylphenidate-induced increases in brain glucose metabolism in the right orbital frontal cortex and right caudate nucleus correlated positively with craving for cocaine.
Significant increases in relative cortical blood flow were found in the posterior portion of the left inferior temporal gyrus, bilateral fusiform gyri, the medial surface of the bilateral frontal lobes, the right superior parietal lobule, and the left orbital frontal cortex (Table 1, Figure 3).
What was not known, and this new study reveals, is that a third region, the orbital frontal cortex (OFC), is critical for shifting between these two types of actions.

Among the most polymodal regions of the brain in general, and the prefrontal lobe in particular, is the orbital frontal cortex (OFC) located between the frontopolar gyri rostrally, the anterior perforated substance caudally, the inferior frontal gyrus laterally, and the ventromedial margin of the cerebral hemisphere medially [18, 19].
After the smell deprivation, researchers found an increase in activity in the orbital frontal cortex and a decrease of activity in the piriform cortex, two regions related to the sense of smell.
