Abstract

Nissl cytoarchitectural and MAP-2 immunocytochemical evidence is presented for the radial organisation of neurons and neural processes in the human medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC). In Brodmann areas 25, 32, and 32', neuronal cell bodies are organised into short vertical stacks of 15-19 somata with pyramidal cells apical dendrites being arranged into distinct vertically oriented units spaced 52-59 microm apart. Such architecture may underlie specific functional aspects of information processing in the human mPFC.
