Objectives: Traditionally, the superior parietal lobule (SPL) is usually investigated as one region of interest, particularly in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies. However, cytoarchitectonic analysis has shown that the SPL has a complex, heterogeneous topology that comprises more than seven sub-regions. Since previous studies have shown how the SPL is significantly involved in different neurological functions-such as visuomotor, cognitive, sensory, higher order, working memory and attention-this study aims to investigate whether these cytoarchitecturally different sub-regions have different functional connectivity to different functional brain networks.
