Natural Sleep and Its Seasonal Variations in Three Pre-industrial Societies
How did humans sleep before the modern era? Because the tools to measure sleep under natural conditions were developed long after the invention of the electric devices suspected of delaying andExpand

Cetacean sleep: An unusual form of mammalian sleep
Our knowledge of the form of lateralized sleep behavior, known as unihemispheric slow wave sleep (USWS), seen in all members of the order Cetacea examined to date, is described. We trace theExpand

Mammalian Brains Are Made of These: A Dataset of the Numbers and Densities of Neuronal and Nonneuronal Cells in the Brain of Glires, Primates, Scandentia, Eulipotyphlans, Afrotherians and
Comparative studies amongst extant species are one of the pillars of evolutionary neurobiology. In the 20th century, most comparative studies remained restricted to analyses of brain structure volumeExpand

Architecture and callosal connections of visual areas 17, 18, 19 and 21 in the ferret (Mustela putorius).
A systematic definition of extrastriate visual areas of the ferret using cytoarchitectitecture, myeloarchitecture and cytochrome oxidase reactivity. Expand

Areal organization of the posterior parietal cortex of the ferret (Mustela putorius).
On grounds of electrophysiological mapping, cytoarchitecture, myeloarchitecture and callosal and thalamic connectivity, we have identified two cortical areas in the posterior parietal cortex of theExpand

Specializations of the granular prefrontal cortex of primates: implications for cognitive processing.
The biological underpinnings of human intelligence remain enigmatic. There remains the greatest confusion and controversy regarding mechanisms that enable humans to conceptualize, plan, andExpand

Order‐specific quantitative patterns of cortical gyrification
Why the extent of cortical gyrification varies across mammals of different brain sizes is a problem that is not clearly understood. The aim of the present study was to test a hypothesis indicatingExpand

Hand/Face Border as a Limiting Boundary in the Body Representation in Monkey Somatosensory Cortex
Horizontal intracortical connections may form one substrate for representational plasticity in somatosensory cortex. Electrophysiological mapping demonstrated the finer details of the representationsExpand

Palaeoneurological clues to the evolution of defining mammalian soft tissue traits
A rich fossil record chronicles the distant origins of mammals, but the evolution of defining soft tissue characters of extant mammals, such as mammary glands and hairs is difficult to interpretExpand
