area 47/12s
Acronym: 47/12s
The term area 47/12s refers to one of four subdivisions of area 47 in the orbital gyri of the human cerebral cortex. Composed of granular cortex, it is defined on the basis of multiple stains for internal structure. It is located adjacent to the agranular orbitofrontal cortex in the posterior part of the lateral orbital gyrus and in the dorsal bank of the anterior horizontal limb of the lateral fissure. It is bounded medially by area 47/12m. The other subdivisions are area 47/12l and area 47/12r. For the relations of this segmentation and terminology to others, see Ongur-2003.
      It may be equivalent to area 47s in the human ( Glasser-2016 ). The equivalent area in the macaque is area 12o (macaque) ( Ongur-2003 ). As granular prefrontal cortex, it has no equivalent in the rat ( Wallis-2012 ).
