This chapter describes the isotope injection cases in the inferior temporal region of five rhesus monkeys. It analyzes the resulting association, striatal, commissural, and subcortical fiber trajectories, as well as the cortical and subcortical terminations. The injections were in the ventral part of the temporal lobe in areas TE2 and TE3 (Case 12), the ventral temporal region, area TF (Case 13), the cortex in the rostral part of the superior temporal sulcus involving area IPa, and encroaching on the lateral border of the hippocampus (Case 14), the medial part of the inferior temporal gyrus in areas TE1 and TE2 (Case 15), and the rostral temporal lobe in the midportion of area TE2 (Case 16).

Keywords: inferior temporal region; area TE2; area TE3; area TF; area TE1
