EditorialNote The lobular mapping of Brodmann areas has The lobular mapping of Brodmann areas has been adapted from the LOCATION hierarchy in 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.
ExternallySourcedDefinition The term area 13 of Brodmann-1905 refers t The term area 13 of Brodmann-1905 refers to a subdivision of the CEREBRAL CORTEX of the guenon defined on the basis of cytoarchitecture. Located in the posterior part of the INSULA, it shares with other parts of the insular cortex a wide molecular layer (I) and very wide multiform layer (VI). The external granular layer (II) is relatively dense. The external pyramidal layer (III) has a central stripe of less cellular density that separates two sublayers, IIIa and IIIb. The internal granular layer (IV) is sufficiently wide and dense to separate clearly sublayer IIIb from layer V. The boundary between layers V and VI is defined by larger ganglion cells, more pyramidal in shape, in layer V giving way to smaller, more spindle-shaped cells that become denser and more homogeneous deeper in layer VI. Often the spindle cells are arrayed horizontally as in the claustrum (VICl), which Brodmann considered a likely extension of layer VI beyond the extreme capsule (VICe) (Brodmann-1905). he extreme capsule (VICe) (Brodmann-1905).
