Brodmann area 5 is part of the parietalcortex in the human brain. It is situated immediately posterior to the primary somatosensory areas (Brodmann areas 1, 2 and 3), and anterior to Brodmann area 7.

Cytoarchitecturally bounded rostrally by the preparietal area5 and the caudal postcentral area 2; caudally by the peristriate area 19; and medially by the dorsal posterior cingulate area 31.
Cytoarchitecturally bounded dorsocaudally by the intermediate frontal area 8, caudally by the agranular frontal area 6, and ventrally by the frontopolar area 10, the middle frontal area 46 and the opercular area 44.
Cytoarchitecturally bounded rostrally by the ventral anterior cingulate area 24, ventrally by the ventral posterior cingulate area 23, dorsally by the gigantopyramidal area 4 and preparietal area5 and caudally by the superior parietalarea 7.
Situated posterior to the primary somatosensory cortex (Brodmannareas 1, 2 and 3), and superior to visual cortices (Brodmannareas 17, 18 and 19), this region is believed to play in visuo-motor coordination (e.g., in reaching to grasp an object).
Brodmannarea 7 is a subdivision of the cytoarchitecturally defined parietal region of cerebral cortex in the guenon.
Distinctive features (Brodmann-1905): in area 7 compared to Brodmannarea 5-1909, large ganglion cells are absent from the internal pyramidal layer (V); the pyramidal cells of the external pyramidal layer (III) sublayer 3b are, on average, larger; the multiform layer (VI) is denser and narrower and more sharply bounded by subcortical white matter.
