Architectonic identification of the core region in auditory cortex of macaques, chimpanzees, and humans
Although the architectonic appearance of the core areas did vary in certain respects across taxonomic groups, the numerous similarities made it possible to identify unambiguously a homologous cortical region in macaques, chimpanzees, and humans.
Do Rats Have Prefrontal Cortex? The Rose-Woolsey-Akert Program Reconsidered
- T. Preuss
- Biology, PsychologyJournal of Cognitive Neuroscience
Assessment of rat frontal cortex suggests that rats probably do not provide useful models of human dorsolateral frontal lobe function and dysfunction, although they might prove valuable for understanding other regions of frontal cortex.
The evolution of the arcuate fasciculus revealed with comparative DTI
Compared cortical connectivity in humans, chimpanzees and macaques and found a prominent temporal lobe projection of the human arcuate fasciculus that is much smaller or absent in nonhuman primates, which may be relevant to the evolution of language.

The results indicate that the human brain displays a distinctive pattern of gene expression relative to non-human primates, with higher expression levels for many genes belonging to a wide variety of functional classes.
Human-Specific Transcriptional Regulation of CNS Development Genes by FOXP2
Experimental support is provided for the functional relevance of changes in FOXP2 that occur on the human lineage, highlighting specific pathways with direct consequences for human brain development and disease in the central nervous system (CNS).
Movement representation in the dorsal and ventral premotor areas of owl monkeys: A microstimulation study

The results suggest that in humans, much of the electrically excitable cortex located on the precentral gyrus, including cortex sometimes considered part of the frontal eye field, is probably homologous to the premotor cortex of nonhuman primates.
Architectionis, somatotopic organization, and ipsilateral cortical connections of the primary motor area (M1) of owl monkeys
The results indicate that M1 interacts directly with at least three non‐primary motor areas and at least six somatosensory areas, and the extent and somatotopic organization of M1 was determined by making detailed microstimulation movement maps and relating the results to cortical architectonics.
Trends and properties of human cerebral cortex: Correlations with cortical myelin content
Myelo‐ and cytoarchitecture of the granular frontal cortex and surrounding regions in the strepsirhine primate Galago and the anthropoid primate Macaca
As the first part of a comparative investigation of primate frontal cortex, we compared the frontal architectonic organization of Galago, a small‐brained, strepsirhine (or “prosimian”) primate, to…
