The large insula of the bottlenose dolphin consists of radial gyri arising, in fanlike fashion, from the transverse insular gyrus, and is covered completely by the frontal, parietal, and temporal opercula . On cytoarchitectonic grounds, the dolphin insula is divided into anterior, middle, and posterior sectors that may be the equivalent of the three similar sectors present in the primate insula. Rostrocaudally, these sectors become increasingly more homogeneous and less laminated. Within each… CONTINUE READING
