The allocortical entorhinal region does not gradually transform into the temporal isocortex. Instead, there is an extended stretch of “transentorhinal” cortex with interdigitation of allocortical and isocortical laminae. The main feature of this transition zone is that the superficial layer of large multipolar nerve cells (Pre-α) of the entorhinal region gradually sweeps downward and follows an oblique course through the outer layers. During this course the starshaped nerve cells of Pre-α are… CONTINUE READING
