frontal cortex (rodent)
The term frontal cortex (rodent) refers to the portion of cerebral cortex in the rat ( Swanson-2004; Paxinos-2009b ) and the mouse ( Franklin-2008 ) that corresponds to the frontal cortex of the primate. It consists of the frontal association area, the motor cortex, the orbital areas (rodent), the prelimbic area, and the infralimbic area. Some authors define part of the infralimbic area as a separate dorsal peduncular area ( Paxinos-2009b ).
