Both feature cortical inhibition as revealed by slowed EEG theta waves, and both show higher levels of activity in areas where theta is prominent, such as the frontal cortex and especially the anterior cingulated cortex.
Apparently, the dorsal anterior cingulated cortex controls our perseverance threshold, instinctively telling us when to abandon an activity or plan.
The anterior cingulated cortex (ACC), according to several theories, acts as a bridge between attention and emotion (Devinsky et al 1995).
Using the sophisticated brain mapping tools of an fMRI, the scientists discovered that the brain triggers activity in the anterior cingulated cortex (ACC), the section largely associated with the perception of contradictions and errors.
Learning potential on the WCST in schizophrenia is related to the neuronal integrity of the anterior cingulated cortex as measured by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
Moreover, in the obese group, self-report measures of disinhibition were negatively correlated with premeal anterior cingulated cortex activations and self-report measures of hunger were positively correlated with premeal medial prefrontal cortex activations.
The anterior part refers to the front one-third of the cingulated cortex.
In brain imaging studies, Haidt found "that medial frontal gyrus, posterior cingulated gyrus, superior temporal sulcus, and inferior parietal lobe were active in consistent patterns when subjects were presented with moral dilemmas.

This process appears to be facilitated by the Von Economo neurons, in a circuit connecting fronto-insular and anterior cingulated regions to cortical areas in the frontal and temporal cortex (Allman, Watson, Tetreault, & Hakeem, 2005).
