evolution and the neural substrate of human mental abilities. Molecular biological techniques have opened the possibility of investigating how specific regulator y genes and morpho-regulatory molecules mediate formation of this complex structure. During evolution, the cerebral cortex has undergone disproportionate growth relative to the rest of the brain [reviewed by Northcutt and Kaas (Northcutt and Kaas, 1995)]. This increase predominately affected its surface area, rather than its thickness… CONTINUE READING
