CytoDefiningCriteria In monkeys, the insula is divided into thr In monkeys, the insula is divided into three cytoarchitectonic areas: (1) a rostroventral agranular field that is divided into two architectonically distinct zones: the periallocortex surrounding the primary olfactory cortex, a zone that possesses a lamina dissecans and the adjacent region of thin cortex that lacks a lamina dissecans; (2) a transitional dysgranular field and (3) a caudodorsal granular insula. eld and (3) a caudodorsal granular insula.

Definition Gray matter of the insular region of the n Gray matter of the insular region of the neocortex. In gyrencephalic animals, it is part of the insular lobe and lies in the depths of the lateral fissure and covered by portions of the frontal, parietal and temporal lobes. It includes Brodmann areas 13-16. l lobes. It includes Brodmann areas 13-16.
EditorialNote I added the synonyms from Brain Info, but I'm still debating whether insular gyrus is a synonym for insular cortex. I think so, but perhaps needs review.
