area a10p
Acronym: a10p
The term area a10p refers to a small rectangular field at the anterolateral margin of orbital prefrontal cortex of the human. Located in the frontopolar region, it borders area 11l and area a47r caudally and area 10pp medially. Its lateral border. which lies at the cortical margin, is formed by area a9-46v, and its rostral border is with area p10p. Defined by multiple criteria, it is fMRI-activated in GAMBLING tasks and, in the left hemisphere only, it is activated in RELATIONAL contrast tasks and deactivated in LANGUAGE STORY-MATH contrast tasks. It greatly overlaps areas referred to by other authors as 10p, 10 and Fp1 ( Glasser-2016 ).
     The equivalent area in the macaque is commonly referred to as 10o ( Ongur-2003 ). As granular prefrontal cortex, It has no architectonic equivalent in the the rat ( Wallis-2012 ).
