Orbitofrontal Cortex

Orbitofrontal Cortex is a part of Frontal Lobe (or maybe Cerebral Cortex not sure) which is involved cognitive and decision making processes. This part of the brain is large in adult humans and very small in children. That's why we can think and decide "like adults" but children cannot understand the circumstances and cannot make logical decisions. 

Orbitofrontal Cortex and it's neural network structure can be improve by Meditation (No citation. I just heard), 

In some accidents when people get damage to their Prefrontal Cortex, decision making becomes very difficult for them. They feel a constant confusion and they generally act like children. These patients also experiences a lack of accountability for their actions. Even though it sounds funny, it is a serious condition whether it's caused by an accident or another reason.

To get more details about how physical structure of brain affects behavior refer to ( ).

When you look at the parts of the brain, from upper-front to lower-back jobs of those parts go like conscious ---> sub-conscious.

The smaller your orbitofrontal cortex is, the blonder you are. Now everything is clear and mistery is solved. Blondies
