Species differences and similarities in the fine structure of the mammalian corpus callosum.

Abstract:

A cross-species ultrastructural study of the corpus callosum was performed in six domestic species: the rat, the rabbit, the cat, the dog, the horse and the cow. The results indicate cross-species conservatism in callosal fiber composition with a good interspecies relation between fiber number and brain size. Across species, increases in both brain size and callosal area indicate more callosal fibers, although less than expected from the estimated increase in cortical cell number. Within each...
