One hundred and twenty nine patients affected by a cerebral lesion confined to a single lobe, underwent a battery of tests including the 'Temporal rule induction' (TRI) and the Raven's 'Coloured Progressive Matrices' (CPM). Frontal patients scored lower than any other group on TRI and parietal patients on CPM. This contrasting pattern of performance provides strong empirical support to the hypothesis that the frontal lobe is specifically involved in tasks that require a control on temporally ordered information whereas the parietal lobe is concerned with cognitive activities that imply visuo-spatial analysis.
