This ‘senior executive’ of the social-emotional brain thus acts as a coping mechanism that efficiently monitors and autoregulates the duration, frequency, and intensity of not only positive but also negative affect states, and thereby a central feature of the developing personality. Indeed, it is now thought that ‘the orbitofrontal cortex is involved in critical human functions, such as social adjustment and the control of mood, drive and responsibility, traits that are crucial in defining the “personality” of an individual’ (Cavada and Schultz 2000:205).
