area Iam
Acronym: Iam
The term area Iam refers to one of four subdivisions of the agranular orbitofrontal cortex. Located at the posterior border of the orbital gyri of the human cerebral cortex, it is defined by internal structure on the basis of multiple stains. It is bounded laterally by area Iapm, medially by the anterior olfactory nucleus, rostrally by area 13l, and caudally by the agranular sector of the insula. The other three subdivisions of the agranular orbitofrontal cortex are area Iapm, area Iai, and area Ial. For the relations of this segmentation and terminology to others, see Ongur-2003.
     Its equivalent in the macaque is area Iam (macaque) ( Carmichael-1994 ). For equivalent areas in the rat and mouse, see agranular insular cortex.
