retrosplenial dysgranular area
The term retrosplenial dysgranular area refers to one of three parts of the retrosplenial area as defined by Nissl stain in the rat ( Swanson-2004 ) and mouse ( Franklin-2008 ). It is located on the mesial surface of the cerebral cortex dorsal to the retrosplenial granular area. Rostrally its lateral boundary is with the premotor cortex. Caudally its lateral boundary, according to some authors is directly with the mediomedial area of the secondary visual cortex ( Paxinos-2009b; Franklin-2008 ); according to others it abuts an intervening retrosplenial agranular area ( Swanson-2004; Dong-2004 ).
