area reIpt of Pandya
Acronym: relpt
The term area reIpt of Pandya refers to a cortical area located in the portion of the parietal lobe in the depth of the lateral fissure adjacent to area reIt of Pandya of the superior temporal gyrus in the macaque. Defined on the basis of cytomyeloarchitecture it differs from area reIt in that it stains less intensely overall, the medium sized pyramidal cells at the deep border of the external pyramidal layer (III) are denser, the internal granular layer (IV) is "a little wider" with a greater density of granule cells and the myelin density is somewhat less ( Pandya-1973 ).
