The intrinsic geometry of the cerebral cortex.

Abstract

The mammalian cerebral cortex is a profoundly convoluted six-layered surface. The expansion of the cortex during evolution appears to be due to an increase in the number of functional units as opposed to an increase in the complexity of the units. Geometric similarity predicts that cortical area should increase in proportion to the 2/3 power of cortical… (More)
