area 10pp
Acronym: 10pp
The term area 10pp refers to a small rectangular field located in the middle off orbital prefrontal cortex of the human. It borders area 10r medially, area 10d rostrally, and area OFC caudally. Its lateral border is with area 11l caudally and area a10p rostrally. Defined by multiple criteria, it is fMRI-activated in WORKING MEMORY, LANGUAGE STORY-MATH, THEORY OF MIND, and FACES-SHAPES contrast tasks. It greatly overlaps areas referred to by other authors as 10p, 10 and Fp1 ( Glasser-2016 ).
     It has no equivalent in the macaque ( Ongur-2003 ) or the rat ( Wallis-2012 ).
