area 6a of Vogts
Acronym: 6a
The term area 6a of Vogts refers to one of two cytoarchitecturally defined subdivisions of area 6 of Brodmann (guenon). The other is area 6b of Vogts. They differ in that, whereas area 6a is agranular, i.e., lacks an internal granular layer (IV), area 6b is dysgranular. Each is further subdivided into two subareas which, for area 6a, are area 6a alpha of Vogts and area 6a beta of Vogts ( Vogts-1919 ).
