area p32
Acronym: p32
The term area p32 refers to one of three subdivisions of area 32o in the human and one of two in the macaque, rat and mouse ( Vogt-2013 ). Defined by internal structure, it is located rostral to the corpus callosum. In the human, it is in the external cingulate gyrus rostral to the genu of the corpus callosum and is the middle part of area 32o, rostrodorsal to area s32 and ventral to area d32. It is bounded caudally by area 24c ( Vogt-2013 ) and rostrally by area 10 and area 9 ( Ongur-2003 ). Defined by multiple criteria, it is fMRI-activated in MOTOR CUE-AVG and LANGUAGE MATH-STORY contrast tasks. It is deactivated in LANGUAGE-STORY and THEORY OF MIND-RANDOM and FACES-SHAPES contrast tasks ( Glasser-2016 ).
     In the macaque it is located similarly, rostral to the genu in the anterior cingulate gyrus. There it is one of two subdivisions of area 32o. The other is area s32. The macaque does not have an area d32. It is bounded dorsally by area 24c and area 24ab and ventrocaudally by area s32 ( Vogt-2013 ). Rostrally it is bounded by area 10 ( Ongur-2003 ).
     In the rat and mouse it is located in the dorsal prelimbic area at the rostral pole of the cerebral cortex. The authors' name for it is 'd32'. The NeuroNames standard name is area d32 (rodent) to avoid ambiguirty with fthe name 'd32' in reference to the human area d32, The rodent, like the macaque, lacks an area d32 equivalent to that of the human ( Vogt-2014; Vogt-2013 ).
