area proA of Pandya
Acronym: proA
The term area proA 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 paAr of Pandya. Area proA lies medial to the core granulous area, between it and the insula. It differs from the granulous core in reduced cell density of the outer layers, less clear cut granule cells in the internal granular layer (IV), and a lighter internal pyramidal layer (V) compared to a dense multiform layer (VI). Functionally the areas are considered auditory cortex ( Pandya-1973 ).
