Depending on the bridged levels, 15 different types of segments can be assigned. PM segment yv was not found in any preparation. Three sectors can be defined: posterior between level c and p, central between level p and a, and anterior between level a and v. Connections between same levels are referred to as type ii (not shown here, compare Fig 2C and 2D).
