Brodmann Area

 
Brodmann Areas, or Brodmann's Areas, are 52 numbered regions of the brain, which are differentiated based on their cytoarchitectural features. Brodmann areas were originally documented by Korbinian Brodmann. When used they are often shorthanded as BA followed by the number, e.g., "BA17."
