area 32pl
Acronym: 32pl
The term area 32pl refers to an architectonic area identified by multiple stains in the subcallosal area ventral to the genu of the corpus callosum of the human. It is located between area 25 dorsally, area 10m rostrally, and area 14c ventrally. Area 24a and area 24b separate it dorsally from area 32ac.
     It is one of four subdivisions of the medial prefrontal cortex; the others are area 32ac, area 25, and parts of area 24. For more on the relations of this segmentation and terminology to others, see Ongur-2003.
     Though its location is more ventral and caudal than area 32 (macaque) ( Vogt-1987; Carmichael-1994 ), it is architectonically more similar to area 32 (macaque) than area 32ac, which is more similar topologically ( Ongur-2003 ). As agranular cortex it may have an equivalent in the rat; see orbital areas (rodent) ( Preuss-1995; Wallis-2012 ).
