    In a recent, Constantinidis et al. have shown that inhibitory relationships between pairs of dorsolateral prefrontal neurons can produce delays in cell activity of 200 to 1400 milliseconds. This is an important finding because it suggests that a simple form of timer might exist in the prefrontal cortex. This provides an alternative to the view that the temporal processing occurs mainly in the basal ganglia.
