Entorhinal Cortex (EC)

The EC forms the ventroposterior part of the rat cerebral hemisphere and is bordered medially largely by the PaS and dorsolaterally by the POR and PER. The EC consists of six layers, four cell layers (II, III, V and VI) and two plexiform layers (I, IV or lamina dissecans). Two subdivisions are generally recognized; a medial (MEA) and a lateral part (LEA). For more information, see the EC article on scholarpedia.
