Psychological aspects[ edit ] The Striatum ; part of the basal ganglia ; neural pathways between the striatum and the frontal lobe have been implicated in planning function.
Planning is one of the executive functions of the brain, encompassing the neurological processes involved in the formulation, evaluation and selection of a sequence of thoughts and actions to achieve a desired goal. Various studies utilizing a combination of neuropsychologicalneuropharmacological and functional neuroimaging approaches have suggested there is a positive relationship between impaired planning ability and damage to the frontal lobe.
A specific area within the mid-dorsolateral frontal cortex located in the frontal lobe has been implicated as playing an intrinsic role in both cognitive planning and associated executive traits such as working memory.
Disruption of the neural pathwaysvia various mechanisms such as traumatic brain injuryor the effects of neurodegenerative diseases between this area of the frontal cortex and the basal ganglia specifically the striatum cortico-striatal pathwaymay disrupt the processes required for normal planning function.
There are a variety of neuropsychological tests which can be used to measure variance of planning ability between the subject and controls. There are different variations of the puzzle, the classic version consists of three rods and usually seven to nine discs of subsequently smaller size.
Planning is a key component of the problem solving skills necessary to achieve the objective, which is to move the entire stack to another rod, obeying the following rules: Only one disk may be moved at a time.
Each move consists of taking the upper disk from one of the rods and sliding it onto another rod, on top of the other disks that may already be present on that rod. No disk may be placed on top of a smaller disk. Test participants with damage to the left anterior frontal lobe demonstrated planning deficits i.
In test participants with damage to the right anterior, and left or right posterior areas of the frontal lobes showed no impairment. The results implicating the left anterior frontal lobes involvement in solving the TOL were supported in concomitant neuroimaging studies which also showed a reduction in regional cerebral blood flow to the left pre-frontal lobe.
For the number of moves, a significant negative correlation was observed for the left prefrontal area: In many countries, the operation of a town and country planning system is often referred to as "planning" and the professionals which operate the system are known as " planners ".
It is a conscious as well as sub-conscious activity. It is "an anticipatory decision making process" that helps in coping with complexities. It is deciding future course of action from amongst alternatives. It is a process that involves making and evaluating each set of interrelated decisions.

This bridges the gap from where the organization is to where it wants to be. The planning function involves establishing goals and arranging them in logical order.
