We looked at the use of Brodmann Areas in SNOMED CT® in this post. I noted that several Brodmann Areas were not included in the SNOMED CT® classification via the international browser. One of these Brodmann Areas is BA 51 which i’ve written about previously. This is also referred to as the Prepiriform Area. As SNOMED CT® has evolved from SNOP – the descriptive system for pathology and Brodmann’s undertook a histological analysis there is likely to be a robust reason for this omission.
The answer is likely to be the Kinkajou. The video below is produced by the Hotel Tinamu in Colombia.
The Kinkajou is nocturnal and is a member of the genus Potus from the Procyonidae family. Brodmann described Brodmann Area 51 not in humans but in the Kinkajou.

This is the definition of the Health Information Exchange that I use (Hersh et al, 2015)
