@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaNPE -> BrainRegionNPE_NC_STG_PAI

This page covers biological details of component Parainsular Area. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Cerebral Cortex -> Temporal Lobe (NC.LOBE.TEMP) -> Superior Temporal Gyrus (NC.STG) -> Parainsular Area (NPE.NC.STG.PAI) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: cortex
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Neocortical Brain - Unimodal Execution Area (NPE)
  • Area circuit: Execution by Auditory Inputs (AES)
  • Brodmann ID: 52
  • Role: cortex.generic
  • Function: Medial auditory stream
  • Comments: between insula and 41, supplementary auditory cortex, monkey only; superior bank of superior temporal gyrus, posterior margin of insula
  • Notes to function:
    • Major projects to PFC multi-modal associations, auditory to insula
