Abstract:

Early mammals presumably had at least two visual, two somatosensory/ motor, and one auditory cortical areas. Neocortical expansion has resulted in the increase in area sizes but more importantly in the proliferation of new cortical areas. Hypotheses to explain the addition of new cortical areas relate to the segregation of initially heterogeneous cortical areas in a trend to increase connectional speci- ficity and processing speed, and to the addition of new sources of morphogenetic activity ...
