Probabilistic maps of neocortical areas and subcortical fiber tracts, warped to a common reference brain, have been published using microscopic architectonic parcellations in ten human postmortem brains. [] Key Method Cytoarchitectonic mapping was performed in serial, cell-body stained histological sections.
Cytoarchitectonical analysis and probabilistic mapping of two extrastriate areas of the human posterior fusiform gyrus
Two novel cytoarchitectonical areas, FG1 and FG2, were identified on the posterior fusiform gyrus of the human extrastriate cortex and comparison with recent functional imaging studies yielded that both areas are located within the object-related visual cortex.
Cytoarchitecture and probabilistic maps of the human posterior insular cortex.
The posterior part of the human insular cortex was remapped in 10 postmortem brains using an observer-independent approach and revealed the existence of 3 cytoarchitectonically distinct areas in the posterior insula, which can be used to identify the anatomical correlates of functional activations observed in neuroimaging studies and to understand the microstructural correlates of the functional segregation of thehuman posterior insulas.
Cytoarchitectonic mapping of the human dorsal extrastriate cortex
Based on their location and neighborhood relationship, areas hOC3d and hOc4d are putative anatomical substrates of functionally defined areas V3dand V3a, a hypothesis that can now be tested by comparing probabilistic cytoarchitectonic maps and activation studies of the living human brain.
Multimodal mapping and analysis of the cyto- and receptorarchitecture of the human hippocampus
A multimodal mapping approach combining cyto- and multi-receptorarchitectonic analyses, and generated probabilistic maps in stereotaxic space of the identified regions of the hippocampal formation constitute the basis for future architectonically informed analyses of in vivo neuroimaging studies.
Cytoarchitecture, probability maps, and functions of the human supplementary and pre-supplementary motor areas
Converging evidence was led to converging evidence supporting the microstructural, and functional segregation of areas SMA and pre-SMA, and maps will be made available to the scientific community to further elucidate the microStructural substrates of motor and cognitive control.
Cytoarchitecture, probability maps and functions of the human frontal pole
Cytoarchitectonic analysis of the human extrastriate cortex in the region of V5/MT+: a probabilistic, stereotaxic map of area hOc5.
The locations and their relationships to sulci strongly suggest that hOc5 is the cytoarchitectonic correlate of human V5/MT+.
Anatomical segmentation of the human medial prefrontal cortex
This analysis showed that cingulate and superior rostral were the sulci most consistently related to mPFC areal boundaries, and sulci patterns in the 11 hemispheres were found, which allowed us to delineate the mFPC areas in them.


Advances in cytoarchitectonic mapping of the human cerebral cortex.
A new concept of cytoarchitectonic mapping is proposed, which is based on a definition of areal borders using multivariate statistical analysis, a quantitative analysis of similarity and dissimilarity in architecture between cortical areas, and a probabilistic mapping of cy toarchitectonics areas in a 3-D reference system.
The parahippocampal gyrus in the baboon: anatomical, cytoarchitectonic and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies.
The size and structure of the baboon parahippocampal cortex makes this species very appropriate for experimental studies on memory function, and the general cytoarchitectonic features are similar to macaques, but the size of temporopolar cortex and the laminar organization of perirhinal and posterior parahipper cortices resemble humans more than macaque species.
The entorhinal cortex: an examination of cyto- and myeloarchitectonic organization in humans.
The normal cyto- and myeloarchitecture of the human ERC is described here as a prerequisite for the accompanying study of this region in schizophrenia and results provide an anatomical basis for evaluating the ERC in human behavior.
Volumetry of temporopolar, perirhinal, entorhinal and parahippocampal cortex from high-resolution MR images: considering the variability of the collateral sulcus.
The segmentation approach presented in this paper was designed to address segmentation guidelines for all major structures of the parahippocampal gyrus (PHG) by allowing volumetric assessment of all major MTL structures in an integrated and consistent manner.
Brain atlases - a new research tool
Broca's region revisited: Cytoarchitecture and intersubject variability
These morphologic asymmetries of area 44 provide a putative correlate of the functional lateralization of speech production and show that macroscopic features are not reliable landmarks of cytoarchitectonic borders.
MR volumetric analysis of the human entorhinal, perirhinal, and temporopolar cortices.
The method provides a tool by which to measure volumes of the entorhinal, perirhinal and temporopolar cortices on coronal MR images and there were no differences between men and women in the volumes of any of the three cortices.
