In the course of evolution, the prefrontal cortex develops to maximum relative mass in the human brain. That large increase in mass is attributable to the disproportionate development of connective fibers (white matter), rather than cells (gray matter). This points to connectivity as the key to the evolutionary advantage of the human prefrontal cortex. In the light of modern research, it becomes apparent that this cortex, in the human, represents the ultimate embodiment of the capability of the… CONTINUE READING
