A new cytoarchitectonic study of the human auditory cortex was undertaken in the light of recent knowledge concerning the architecture, fiber connectivity, and physiology of this region in the monkey. The survey of three normative human brains (six hemispheres) processed in whole-brain serial sections disclosed a cytoarchitectonic organization of the(More)
Cyto- and myeloarchitectonic investigation of the temporal operculum and the exposed superior temporal gyrus was combined with a connection study of the projection fibers of the pertinent areas in the rhesus monkey. A belt-like organization of the auditory region with a koniocortex core (corresponding to AI) surrounded by belt areas was revealed. This(More)
The auditory regions in four normal brains were mapped and the full extent of the cytoarchitectonic subdivisions was measured for the presence of right-left asymmetries. It was found that asymmetries similar to those found in the planum temporale (left commonly larger than right) are also seen in auditory cytoarchitectonic area Tpt, and area of probable(More)
Ramon y Cajal (1909) adduced evidence that the pyramid cells of the mammalian neocortex have developed from the amphibian stage of the endbrain neurons with only subpial dendritic arborization. The apical bouquet of the pyramid cells can be regarded as a conservative feature and the basal dendrites as a progressive feature in pallial neuron evolution. In(More)
