(A) The rostral orbitofrontal cortex (ORB), corresponding to Brodmann's area (BA) 47, is depicted in the white box. Sections from the ORB were used to measure (B) the overall neuronal and glial density and (C) cortical width. A 14% reduction in the density of the general population of neurons (pyramidal plus nonpyramidal) was found in the elderly group with major depressive disorder (MDD) as compared with age-matched nonpsychiatric control subjects. Values represent mean ± SD.
