area 47/12
Acronym: 47/12
The term area 47/12 refers to the lateral portion of the orbital gyri in the human segmented on the basis of multiple stains for internal structure. Composed of granular cortex, it is located between the agranular orbitofrontal cortex posteriorly, area 11 anteriorly, and area 13 medially.
     It is one of ten subdivisions of the orbitomedial prefrontal cortex; the others in addition to the three mentioned, are area 10, area 14, area 24, area 25, area 32ac and area 32pl.
     It is subdivided into four areas: area 47/12r, area 47/12m, area 47/12l, and area 47/12s.
     The acronym 47/12 reflects its equivalence to area 47 of Brodmann in the human and area 12 (macaque). For the relations of this segmentation and terminology to others, see Ongur-2003.
     The equivalent area in the macaque is area 12 (macaque). As granular prefrontal cortex, it has no equivalent in the rat ( Wallis-2012 ).
