Area Corticoidea Dorsolateralis

Hodological evidence from the current study and other reports argues for the possibility that the area corticoidea dorsolateralis might be hodologically comparable to the cingulate cortex, receiving input from a mediodorsal thalamic-relevant subdivision (lateral subdivision of nucleus dorsomedialis anterior, and medial aspect of nucleus dorsolateralis pars medialis), which also projects on the caudal nidopallium close to (but not coextensive with) the nidopallium caudolaterale, another potential analogue of avian prefrontal cortex.  

Pigeons with lesions of the overlying area corticoidea dorsolateralis (CDL) served as controls.  

Using a multiple regression analysis in which structure-specific lesion extents are correlated with different postoperative behavioral measures, the specific contribution of the relevant structures were differentiated from the neighbouring areas CDL (area corticoidea dorsolateralis) and NC (neostriatum caudale).  

Finally, HIS/HD have projections predominantly to HA and the dorsocaudal telencephalon (area corticoidea dorsolateralis and area parahippocampalis), as well as relatively minor projections to the areas which also receive projections from HA.  

The highest densities of binding sites were observed in the hyperstriatum dorsale, archistriatum, auditory field L of neostriatum, area corticoidea dorsolateralis and temporo-parieto-occipitalis, area parahippocampalis, tectum opticum, nucleus dorsomedialis anterior thalami, and in the periventricular area of the hypothalamus. Fibers and terminals were observed in the area corticoidea dorsolateralis, area parahippocampalis, hippocampus, hyperstriatum accessorium, hyperstriatum dorsale, archistriatum, tuberculum olfactorium, nuclei dorsolateralis and dorsomedialis of the thalamus, and throughout the hypothalamus and the median eminence. A qualitatively good matching was found in the area corticoidea dorsolateralis, hyperstriatum dorsale, hyperstriatum accessorium, nucleus septi lateralis, nuclei dorsomedialis and dorsolateralis thalami, and in some hypothalamic areas.  

High concentrations of [ 3H]prazosin binding sites were detected in the archistriatum/pars ventralis, the hippocampus, the cortex piriformis, the area corticoidea dorsolateralis, the dorsal thalamus, and the nucleus praetectalis.  

In addition to identified intrinsic connections within Hp and APH, both Hp and APH were found to be in receipt of ipsilateral forebrain afferents from each other, the hyperstriatum accessorium, nucleus of the diagonal band, nucleus taeniae, and area corticoidea dorsolateralis. Forebrain efferents from both Hp and APH were found to project ipsilaterally to the septum, the area of the fasciculus diagonalis Brocae, nucleus taeniae, and area corticoidea dorsolateralis.  

(2) Laterally coursing fibers project to area corticoidea dorsolateralis, area temporo-parieto-occipitalis, cortex piriformis, and the posterior part of archistriatum.  

Furthermore, scattered SRIF-labeled cells were noticed in the area corticoidea dorsolateralis and area temporoparieto-occipitalis.
