The facts recorded in this paper are partly the results of a research made conjointly by Drs. Ferrier and Yeo, aided by a grant from the British Medical Association, and partly of a research made by Dr. Ferrier alone, aided by a grant from the Royal Society. It has been considered convenient and advisable to publish the results together, more especially with the view of contrasting the different effects of lesions of different parts of the brain established under similar conditions. 
XXV.—The Topography of the Cerebral Cortex of the Guinea-pig
This investigation was begun as a result of certain observations made by Dr T. Graham Brown, on reflexes in the guinea-pig, that an examination should be made of the cortex histologically and by electrical stimulation in order to locate the position of the various areas.
Lesions of the Precentral Gyrus in Nonhuman Primates: A Pre-Medline Bibliography
Evidence is provided that these papers can provide valuable information on the function of the primate motor cortex and on recovery of behavior after brain lesions, and are also useful for sharpening the questions posed by more refined modern studies.

David Ferrier was a British physician who studied the localization of function in the cerebral hemispheres during the latter half of the 19th century and demonstrated that auditory cortex was located in the superior temporal gyrus of the monkey and that ablation of auditory cortex resulted in deafness.
Cerebral White Matter — Historical Evolution of Facts and Notions Concerning the Organization of the Fiber Pathways of the Brain
This historical review has contemporary relevance because the fiber pathways of the brain are crucial components of the distributed neural circuits that subserve nervous system function; the clinical manifestations of white matter damage are recognized with greater frequency and clarity; and magnetic resonance imaging tractography has made it possible to view these fiber bundles within the living human brain.
The Historical Development of Ideas About the Auditory Cortex
An excellent picture is presented of the parcellation of the auditory regions of the cortex in primates and non-primates by the application of tonotopic mapping and correlated neuroanatomical tracing and the revelations of histochemistry and immunocytochemistry.

Ferrier's mistake
Motor responses from the macaque occipital lobe
The present study is concerned with supplementary motor areas demonstrable in the occipital lobe of the macaque and it seems probable that these additional motor areas are trigger points for the initiation of Jacksonian convulsions.
Activity changes following sulcal, but not medial, ablation of the prefrontal cortex of the guinea pig
It is concluded that, with respect to basic or unlearned functions, interspecies parallels can be drawn for the cortical projection area of the medial portion of the mediodorsal nucleus.
