area 36 of Brodmann
Acronym: 36
The term area 36 of Brodmann refers to a subdivision of the cytoarchitecturally defined temporal region of cerebral cortex inthe human. With its medial boundary corresponding approximately to the rhinal sulcus it is located primarily in the fusiform gyrus. Cytoarchitecturally it is bounded laterally and caudally by the area 20 of Brodmann (human), medially by the perirhinal area 35 and rostrally by the area 38 of Brodmann (human) ( Brodmann-1909 ). While Brodmann did not find area 36 sufficiently differentiated in the guenon, an Old World monkey similar to the macaque, to report, he did observe it in the marmoset, a New World species and the lemur, a prosimian ( Brodmann-1909 )
