Beautiful picture of brain areas involved in decision-making

Found yesterday, in a paper by Sanfey (nice review paper, by the way):

"Fig. 2. Map of brain areas commonly found to be activated in decision-making studies. The sagittal section (A) shows the location of the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC), orbitofrontal cortex (OFC), nucleus accumbens (NA), and substantia nigra (SN). The lateral view (B) shows the location of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and lateral intraparietal area (LIP). The axial section (C; cut along the white line in A and B) shows the location of the insula (INS) and basal ganglia (BG)."
