Design-based stereological methods (the Cavalieri principle and vertical sectioning) have been used to estimate the volumes, surface areas and thicknesses of the cerebral cortex. Cortices of individual hemispheres were analysed in a selection of 31 adult domestic mammals (horses, oxen, pigs, goats, dogs, cats and rabbits). There were 13 females and 18 males. After correcting for fixation shrinkage effects, results were tested for species, laterality and sex differences using linear regression… CONTINUE READING
