Translating developmental time across mammalian species
Conservation of the order in which events occur in developing mammalian brains permits use of regression theory to model the timing of neural development. Following a small adjustment to account for… Expand
Linked regularities in the development and evolution of mammalian brains.
Analysis of data collected on 131 species of primates, bats, and insectivores showed that the sizes of brain components, from medulla to forebrain, are highly predictable from absolute brain size by… Expand

A general model of neural development is derived to fit 18 mammalian species, including humans, macaques, several rodent species, and six metatherian (marsupial) mammals. The goal of this work is to… Expand
Developmental structure in brain evolution.
How does evolution grow bigger brains? It has been widely assumed that growth of individual structures and functional systems in response to niche-specific cognitive challenges is the most plausible… Expand
Quantitative studies of single-cell properties in monkey striate cortex. I. Spatiotemporal organization of receptive fields.
1. The properties of single cells in striate cortex of the rhesus monkey, representing the visual field 2 degrees -5 degrees from the fovea, were examined quantitatively with stationary and moving… Expand
Extrapolating brain development from experimental species to humans.
To better understand the neurotoxic effects of diverse hazards on the developing human nervous system, researchers and clinicians rely on data collected from a number of model species that develop… Expand
Quantitative studies of single-cell properties in monkey striate cortex. II. Orientation specificity and ocular dominance.
1. Quantitative analyses of orientation specificity and ocular dominance were carried out in striate cortex of the rhesus monkey. 2. Sharpness of orientation selectivity was greater for simple (S… Expand
The early development of thalamocortical and corticothalarnic projections
The early development ofthalamocortical and corticothalarnic projections in hamsters was studied to compare the specificity and maturation of these pathways, and to identify potential sources of… Expand
Quantitative studies of single-cell properties in monkey striate cortex. III. Spatial frequency.
1. The response properties of single cells in monkey striate cortex were examined using moving bars, square-wave gratings, and sine-wave gratings. 2. The moving of cells studied were not selective… Expand
The Limbic System in Mammalian Brain Evolution
Previous accounts of mammalian brain allometry have relied largely on data from primates, insectivores and bats. Here we examine scaling of brain structures in carnivores, ungulates, xenarthrans and… Expand
