area paAlt of Pandya
Acronym: paAlt
The term area paAlt 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 paAr of Pandya, and area proA of Pandya. The largest of the four, it is "the most typical" due to the size of pyramidal cells deep in the external pyramidal layer (III). Pyramidal cells in the internal pyramidal layer (V) are moderately large. Myeloarchitectonic differences are also prominent. Functionally the areas are regarded as auditory cortex ( Pandya-1973 ).
