Why the extent of cortical gyrification varies across mammals of different brain sizes is a problem that is not clearly understood. The aim of the present study was to test a hypothesis indicating that the order is a significant phylogenetic grouping in terms of quantifiable gyrification indices (GIs) and thus variation between mammals. The GI was determined from serial sections of the brain of 25 different mammalian species, representing four different orders: primates, carnivores, ungulates… CONTINUE READING
