The neuroanatomical findings in 4 consecutively studied brains of men with developmental dyslexia are discussed with reference to developmental cortical anomalies, cerebral asymmetries, reorganization of the brain after early lesions, and the association between learning disorders, left handedness, and diseases of the immune system.
One hundred million years of interhemispheric communication: the history of the corpus callosum.
It is postulate that the evolutionary origin of the corpus callosum in placental mammals is related to the mechanism of midline fusion in the sensory cortices, which only in mammals receive a topographically organized representation of the sensory surfaces.

The isocortex may have originated partly as a consequence of an overall “dorsalizing” effect during pallial development, which was driven by selective pressures favoring the development of associative networks between the dorsal cortex, the olfactory cortex, and the hippocampus, which participated in spatial or episodic memory in the early mammals.

Species Differences and Similarities in the Fine Structure of the Mammalian Corpus callosum
There is a population of coarse-diameter fibers that tend to increase their diameter and conduction velocity with increasing brain size, but allometric calculations suggest that the associated increase in velocity in these large fibers may not be sufficient to maintain a constant interhemispheric transmission time in different species.
N400 ERPs for actions: building meaning in context
This review outlines recent data from N400 studies that examine the understanding of action events and suggests that both negativities reflect a common neurocognitive mechanism involved in the construction of meaning through the expectancies created by previous experiences and current contextual information.
Brain connections: interhemispheric fiber systems and anatomical brain asymmetries in humans.

A sensible pattern of histological differentiation along the corpus callosum is found, indicating specific properties of interhemispheric conduction for axonal fibers involved in different brain functions, and it is determined that an increased callosal area indicates an increased number of callosal fibers.
