Parietal Ventral Cortex

@@Home -> BiologicalLifeResearch -> BrainAreaNCP -> BrainRegionNCP_NC_PG_PV

This page covers biological details of component Parietal Ventral Cortex. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Cerebral Cortex -> Parietal Lobe (NC.LOBE.PAR) -> Postcentral Gyrus (NC.PG) -> Lateral Parietal Cortex (NC.PG.LPC) -> Parietal Ventral Cortex (NCP.NC.PG.PV) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: cortex
  • Quality: L0
  • Brain area: Neocortical Brain - Conscious Personality Area (NCP)
  • Area circuit: Neocortical Somatic Aggregation (SOM)
  • Brodmann ID: 40
  • Role: cortex.generic
  • Function: Creating somatosensory memory, attention, learning and memory
  • Notes to function:
    • BA5/PMC
