This chapter describes the isotope injections that were placed in the prefrontal cortex of four 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 medial surface of the prefrontal cortex involving mainly area 32 (Case 30), above the midportion of the principal sulcus in area 46d (Case 31), the middle part of ventral area 46 in both the sulcal and gyral cortices (Case 32), and the orbital frontal cortex in the orbital part of area 47/12 (Case 33).

Keywords: prefrontal cortex; area 32; area 46d; area 47/12; sulcal cortex; gyral cortex
