paleocortex
Acronym:
The term paleocortex refers to one of three types of allocortex defined on the basis of cytoarchitecture. The other two are archicortex and periallocortex. It consists of very thin, primitive cortex with few clearly defined layers. It is distinguished developmentally by the fact that it does not develop through the cortical plate. It includes the olfactory bulb, accessory olfactory bulb, olfactory tubercle, septum, piriform area and periamygdalar area ( Stephan-1975 ). It differs from earlier definitions in that it includes the olfactory bulb and accessory olfactory bulb, which were once not recognized to be cortical structures ( Stephan-1975, Zilles-1990 ).
