We have reviewed the organization and development of the interhemispheric projections through the forebrain commissures, especially those of the CC, in connection with the development of brain asymmetries. Analyzing the available data, we conclude that the developing CC plays an important role in the ontogenesis of brain asymmetries. We have extended a previous hypothesis that the rodent CC may exert a stabilizing effect over the unstable populational asymmetries of cortical size and shape, and… CONTINUE READING
