CommentI don't know how we want to represent the I don't know how we want to represent the relationship between frontal cortex and frontal lobe; right now, I'm going to relate them through "Same As" relationship, although I'm not going to assert that these two terms are synonymous, because there are many species that do not have a frontal "lobe". species that do not have a frontal "lobe".
