area Ts2 of Pandya
Acronym: Ts2
The term area Ts2 of Pandya refers to the middle of the three superior temporal isocortical areas defined on the basis of cytomyeloarchitecture in the macaque. Its internal structure is intermediate between that of area Ts1 of Pandya and area Ts3 of Pandya. Trends that characterize the transition from Ts1 through Ts2 to Ts3 are an increase in the prominence of granule cells, increasing differentiation between the internal pyramidal layer (V) and the multiform layer (VI), a general increase in myelination, and emergence of the inner band of Baillarger ( Pandya-1973 ).
