Layer VII is the deepest cortical layer in rats, and consists of a thin layer of persistent subplate cells overlain by a cell-sparse, myelin-rich stratum through which many corticocortical axons travel. Layer VII neurons participate in local and long-distance corticocortical connections. The present study was undertaken to determine whether layer VII is a typical feature in rodent brains, and to determine which other mammalian taxa exhibit a layer VII. The adult brains of 144 species from 22… CONTINUE READING
