Brodman Areas

  • Areas 3, 1 & 2 – Primary Somatosensory Cortex (frequently referred to as Areas 3, 1, 2 by convention)
  • Area 4 – Primary Motor Cortex
  • Area 5 – Somatosensory Association Cortex
  • Area 6 – Premotor cortex and Supplementary Motor Cortex (Secondary Motor Cortex)(Supplementary motor area)
  • Area 7 – Somatosensory Association Cortex
  • Area 8 – Includes Frontal eye fields
  • Area 9 – Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex
  • Area 10 – Anterior prefrontal cortex (most rostral part of superior and middle frontal gyri)
  • Area 11 – Orbitofrontal area (orbital and rectus gyri, plus part of the rostral part of the superior frontal gyrus)
  • Area 12 – Orbitofrontal area (used to be part of BA11, refers to the area between the superior frontal gyrus and the inferior rostral sulcus)
  • Area 13 and Area 14* – Insular cortex
  • Area 15* – Anterior Temporal Lobe
  • Area 17 – Primary visual cortex (V1)

  • Area 19 – Associative visual cortex (V3)
  • Area 20 – Inferior temporal gyrus
  • Area 21 – Middle temporal gyrus
  • Area 22 – Superior temporal gyrus, of which the caudal part is usually considered to contain the Wernicke’s area
  • Area 23 – Ventral Posterior cingulate cortex
  • Area 24 – Ventral Anterior cingulate cortex.
  • Area 25 – Subgenual cortex (part of the Ventromedial prefontal cortex)[4]
  • Area 26 – Ectosplenial portion of the retrosplenial region of the cerebral cortex
  • Area 27 – Piriform cortex
  • Area 28 – Posterior Entorhinal Cortex
  • Area 29 – Retrosplenial cingulate cortex
  • Area 30 – Part of cingulate cortex
  • Area 31 – Dorsal Posterior cingulate cortex
  • Area 32 – Dorsal anterior cingulate cortex
  • Area 33 – Part of anterior cingulate cortex

  • Area 36 – Parahippocampal cortex (on the Parahippocampal gyrus)
  • Area 37 – Fusiform gyrus
  • Area 38 – Temporopolar area (most rostral part of the superior and middle temporal gyri)
  • Area 39 – Angular gyrus, considered by some to be part of Wernicke’s area
  • Area 40 – Supramarginal gyrus considered by some to be part of Wernicke’s area
  • Areas 41 & 42 – Primary and Auditory Association Cortex
  • Area 43 – Primary gustatory cortex
  • Area 44 – pars opercularis, part of Broca’s area
  • Area 45 – pars triangularis Broca’s area
  • Area 46 – Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex
  • Area 47 – Inferior prefontal gyrus
  • Area 48 – Retrosubicular area (a small part of the medial surface of the temporal lobe)
  • Area 49 – Parasubiculum area in a rodent
  • Area 52 – Parainsular area (at the junction of the temporal lobe and the insula)
