Connectivity defining Criteria: Defined as the part of the prefrontal cortex that receives projections from the magnocellular, medial nucleus of the mediodorsal thalamus
Brain regions that send axons into this region: Medial OfC reciprocally connects with the hippocampus, posterior parahippocampal cortex, posterior cingulate and retrosplenial areas, and area prostriata

EditorialNoteUMLS clearly has obscured this distinction UMLS clearly has obscured this distinction between cortex and gyri here, as they include the following under this CUI: orbital gyrus, orbital area, orbital cortex, gyri orbitales, orbitofrontal gyrus, orbitofrontal gyri, gyrus orbitofrontalis. Clearly, this would equate this volumetric structure defined as Orbital Frontal Cortex and the "volumetric" structure defined in NN as "Orbital gyrus". tructure defined in NN as "Orbital gyrus".
