Brain patterns are compared by quantitative histology in 28 native and introduced mid-European cyprinid species, considering 17 primary sensory and higher order brain areas. Cluster analysis (CLA) and principal component analysis (PCA) based on relative volumes of these brain areas indicate that cyprinid brains are diversified into four major groups, basic cyprinid, abramine, octavo-lateralis and chemosensory. PCA recognizes the brain of Phoxinus phoxinus as a fifth group. Interspecific… CONTINUE READING
