subcallosal area
Acronym: SCA
The term subcallosal area refers to a part of the limbic lobe of cerebral cortex defined on the basis of topology in the human. It is located rostral to the paraterminal gyrus, ventral to the anterior cingulate gyrus and caudal to the superior frontal gyrus and straight gyrus. The nomenclature for this cortical region of the human is unusually confused ( Anthoney-1994 ). NeuroNames adheres to the definition of Carpenter-1983 and Kahle-2001.
