area 11m
Acronym: 11m
The term area 11m refers to the more medial of two components of area 11 in the human. Defined on the basis of multiple stains, it occupies the medial one-third of the center of the orbital gyri. It is bounded rostrally by area 10p; caudally, from lateral to medial, by area 13m, area 13b, and area 14r; laterally by the other component of area 11, area 11l; and medially by area 10r. For more on the relations of this segmentation and terminology to others, see Ongur-2003.
     It is equivalent topologically and by internal structure to area 11m (macaque). As granular prefrontal cortex, it has no equivalent in the rat ( Wallis-2012 ).
