It seems that both for inhibiting "taboo" and "non-taboo" verbal responses the rIFG/rIFC is involved. However, as suggested by the 2nd provided reference, this area is also involved in inhibiting manual responses. The same paper also seems to suggest that the area "being inhibited" is the lIFG/lIFC (Broca's area more or less).



In effect you more or less provided the answer yourself, you knew that PFC is controlling "language areas". Now ask yourself if having more exact localization helps you understand the brain or behavior any better than before you were provided with this information.
