Yes, some anticonvulsants like depakote are more frontal cortex friendly than others.

Dopamine release in the frontal cortex creates a sence of self, a sence of presence. When dopamine gets released in the frontal cortex, it is able to shut down overactive limbic circutry.

Ie when a normal person gets gets depressed, the frontal cortex is able more easily able to shut off the negative emotions.

So in essence the fronal cortex acts as a mediator for many other brain circuts, dopamine release activates it and is subsequently able to assert a degree of controll over the rest of the brain, emotionally, cognatively, whatever.
