  • Externally Sourced Definition: The term area 7 of Brodmann-1909 refers to a subdivision of the cytoarchitecturally defined parietal region of cerebral cortex in the guenon. It occupies most of the parietal lobe excluding the postcentral gyrus and superior parietal lobule. Brodmann-1909 considered it topologically homologous to the combined superior parietal area 7, the supramarginal area 40 (H) and the angular area 39 (H) of the human. Cytoarchitecurally he regarded it as "a still undifferentiated precursor zone for all parietal areas (apart from area 5) (Garey-1999). Distinctive features (Brodmann-1905): in area 7 compared to area 5 of Brodmann-1909, large ganglion cells are absent from the internal pyramidal layer (V); the pyramidal cells of the external pyramidal layer (III) sublayer 3b are, on average, larger; the multiform layer (VI) is denser and narrower and more sharply bounded by subcortical white matter.

EditorialNoteThe lobular mapping of Brodmann areas has The lobular mapping of Brodmann areas has been adapted from the LOCATION hierarchy in Brainmap.org. To date (2007-10-02) this only define the set of lateralized cerebral lobe locations where a given Brodmann area is located. The intension is to eventually incorporate the more detailed gyri and sulci relations as well. detailed gyri and sulci relations as well.
