Scaling principles of white matter connectivity in the human and nonhuman primate brain

Abstract:

Brains come in many shapes and sizes. Nature has endowed big-brained primate species like humans with a proportionally large cerebral cortex. Comparative studies have suggested, however, that the total volume allocated to white matter connectivity-the brain's infrastructure for long-range interregional communication-does not keep pace with the cortex. We investigated the consequences of this allometric scaling on brain connectivity and network organization. We collated structural and diffusio...
