area 28 of Brodmann (guenon)
Acronym: 28
The term area 28 of Brodmann (guenon) refers to a subdivision of the cerebral cortex of the guenon defined on the basis of cytoarchitecture. Brodmann regarded its location adjacent to the CA fields as imprecisely represented in the illustration of the cortex of the guenon brain in Brodmann-1909. It is located on the medial aspect of the temporal lobe. In the human it and the area 34 of Brodmann (human) together constitute approximately the entorhinal area (Brodmann-1909).
     Distinctive features ( Brodmann-1905 ): the molecular layer of the cerebellar cortex (I) is unusually wide; the external granular layer (II) contains nests of, for the most part, multipolar cells: the external pyramidal layer (III) contains medium sized pyramidal cells which merge with cells of the internal pyramidal layer (V); a clear cell free zone represents sublayer 5b of layer V; the multiform layer is wide and has a less clear two sublayer structure; the internal granular layer (IV) is totally absent.
