area paAr of Pandya
Acronym: paAr
The term area paAr of Pandya refers to one of four cortical areas that border the granulous cortex core in the superior temporal gyrus of the macaque (area Kam of Pandya and area Kalt of Pandya) defined on the basis of cytomyeloarchitecture. The others are area paAc of Pandya, area paAlt of Pandya, and area proA of Pandya. The most rostral of the four, it is most similar to the granulous core. It differs primarily in a reduced cell density of the outer layers, somewhat larger pyramidal cells in the external pyramidal layer (III) and the internal pyramidal layer (V) is not as light. Functionally the areas are considered auditory cortex (Pandya-1973).
