Hi Donna and James, Thanks very much for your kind replies.
It can be quite annoying when you go to the source reference for the labeling acronym and still can't find what it actually stands for. I'm just glad I'm not the only one who finds this a big issue! Thanks for the warning about the human brain regions.

However, my recollection is roughly: IPa = intraparietal, anterior PA = no idea TAa - is some temporal cortex subdivision, anterior TE, Tx = similarly are temporal subdivisions, but of unclear actual nomenclature. My experience in finding/using such terminology was that if some study had cited a reasonable looking homologue to what I was observing in our monkey slice sections then I would use their nomenclature. If there were competing potential names then I went with that which seemed closest to what I was seeing. In the case of these latter names, I couldn't find any more recent refernces, and thus stook with their nomenclature even though they didn't explicitly state what their acronyms stood for--often times these were transcribed from German or the like. The nomenclature issue was a BIG issue indeed, and will likely continue to "evolve" as newer and better methods of segregating brain regions develop. The problem only gets worse when dealing with human brain areas/regions. hope this helps. jim James W. Lewis, PhD. Dept.
