9. A communication method comprising:mapping downlink control information to resources by:
selectively mapping the downlink control information to resources of a first resource region and a second resource region included in a first type of subframe, the first resource region being available for a downlink control channel and a downlink data channel and the second resource region being available for the downlink control channel; and
selectively mapping the downlink control information to resources of the second resource region included in a second type of subframe, the second type of subframe having a gap period between a downlink period and an uplink period in time division duplex (TDD); and
transmitting the mapped downlink control information, wherein a terminal apparatus that receives the transmitted downlink control information does not blind-decode the first resource region in the second type of subframe.
