The most marked leftward interhemispheric asymmetry of the human and great ape brain is present in a multisensory association area of the superior temporal gyrus. This cortical region, the planum temporale (part of Brodmann's area 22), has a cytoarchitectural homolog, area Tpt, in Old World monkeys. Reports in non-human primates vary widely in descriptions of area Tpt-associated indices of asymmetry at the gross anatomic level, but such asymmetry has not yet been considered at the cellular… CONTINUE READING
