This analysis compares coronary(More)
The connections of the neocortical structures in animal and human brains with the complex of nuclear formations of the extrapyramidal system have been studied. The authors present comparative characteristics and distribution of these connections in the nuclear and other formations of the extrapyramidal system. Both mediator (via the thalamus) and direct(More)
