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 that of an anthropoid primate, Macaca, by using myelin‐ and Nissl‐stained material. We were able to distinguish many more areas in both taxa than have been recognized in most previous studies of the primate frontal lobe. In particular, we were able to subdivide many of the areas shown in the commonly… 

Ipsilateral cortical connections of granular frontal cortex in the strepsirhine primate Galago, with comparative comments on anthropoid primates

The corticocortical connections of GFC were studied in the relatively small‐brained, strepsirhine primate Galago, with a series of eight tracer injections in the frontal cortex, and an additional eight injections of parietal and temporal cortex.

Architectonics of the parietal and temporal association cortex in the strepsirhine primate Galago compared to the anthropoid primate Macaca

This work compared the myelo‐ and cytoarchitecture of posterior association cortex in the anthropoid Macaca to that of the small‐brained, strepsirhine (“prosimian”) primate Galag.

Cyto-, myelo- and chemoarchitecture of the prefrontal cortex of the Cebus monkey

It was observed that the remarkable anatomical similarity between the brains of genera Macaca and Cebus may extend to architectonic aspects and the number and distribution of these areas were to a large extent similar to those described in Old World monkeys PfC in more recent studies.

Architectonic subdivision of the orbital and medial prefrontal cortex in the macaque monkey

The architectonic structure of the OMPFC was analyzed with nine histochemical and immunohistochemical stains in 32 individuals of three macaque species to allow the visualization of markers related to metabolism, synapses, and neurotransmitters.

Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex: comparative cytoarchitectonic analysis in the human and the macaque brain and corticocortical connection patterns

The present analysis showed that only a restricted portion of what had previously been labelled as area 46 in the monkey has the same characteristics as area46 of the human brain; the remaining part of this monkey region has the characteristics of a portion of the middle frontal gyrus in the humanbrain that had previously be included as part of area 9.

Architecture and morphology of the human ventromedial prefrontal cortex

The present article provides greater detail with regard to the definition of architectonic areas within the ventromedial part of the human ventral frontal cortex and describes their location in Montreal Neurological Institute proportional stereotactic space and in relation to sulcal landmarks.

Mapping of architectonic subdivisions in the macaque monkey, with emphasis on parieto‐occipital cortex

This study focuses largely on the architectonic organization of areas within and near the IPS of the macaque monkey, but also examines remaining portions of the hemisphere with which the IPS is interconnected.

Limbic frontal cortex in hominoids: a comparative study of area 13.

Differences in the organization and size of individual cortical areas involved in emotional reactions and social behavior can be related to behavioral specializations of each hominoid and to the evolution of emotions in hominids.

An attempt is made to define some of the areas of the neocortex of this primate by the cytoarchitectural method and to correlate these findings with the functional subdivisions of the cortex obtained by electrophysio-logical studies.
