Encyclopedia > Brodmann area 28
Jump to: navigation, search



The term 'Brodmann area 28 refers to a subdivision of the cerebral cortex of the guenon defined on the basis of cytoarchitecture. Brodmann regarded its location adjacent to the HIPPOCAMPUS as imprecisely represented in the illustration of the cortex of the guenon brain in Brodmann-1909. It is located on the medial aspect of the temporal lobe.


In the human it and the dorsal entorhinal area 34 (H) together constitute approximately the entorhinal area (Brodmann-1909).

Distinctive features (Brodmann-1905)

The molecular layer (I) is unusually wide; the external granular layer (II) contains nests of, for the most part, multipolar cells: the external pyramidal layer (III) contains medium sized pyramidal cells which merge with cells of the internal pyramidal layer (V); a clear cell free zone represents sublayer 5b of layer V; the multiform layer is wide and has a less clear two sublayer structure; the internal granular layer (IV) is totally absent.

Brodmann’s areas 3, 2,1 (on the postcentral gyrus) is the primary somatosensory cortex; area 17 (cuneus and lingual gyri) receives visual input; area 41 (transverse temporal gyrus) is for auditory sense.
Areas 5 and 7 are secondary to somatosensory areas 3,2,1; areas 18 and 19 are secondary to visual area 17; areas 42 and 22 are secondary to auditory area 41; area 28 is secondary to olfactory area 34.
Near areas 39 and 40, at the posterior margin of area 22, is Wernicke’s speech area; it is connected with Broca’s motor speech area by long associational fibers of the white matter, injury to Wernicke’s area results in receptive aphasia.

Brodmann Areas in the Human Brain with an Emphasis on Vision and Language
A Brodmann area is a region in the brain cortex defined in many different species based on its cytoarchitecture.
Brodmann areas were originally defined by Korbinian Brodmann and referred to by numbers from 1 to 52.
