BRODMANN'S AREA

An area seen in the cerbral cortex that shows a different arrangement and occurence of cells to other areas. Brodmann assigned numbers to various brain regions by analyzing each area's cellular structure starting from the central sulcus (the boundary between the frontal and parietal lobes).

BRODMANN'S AREA: "Brodmann's area is identified by a number system."
