Heterotypic cortex; Primary cortex
Idiotypic cortex are those areas of neocortex, which either receive direct projections from the specific sensory relay nuclei of the thalamus (primary sensory cortex) or represent the final common pathway for motor fibers (primary motor cortex) prior to their entering the corticobulbar and corticospinal tracts of the internal capsule.
Primary visual cortex: Brodmann’s area (BA) 17 located on the mesial surface of the occipital lobe and surrounding the calcarine fissure on both its superior (cuneus) and inferior (lingual gyrus) banks
