Neuropil Distribution In The Anterior Cingulate And Primary Visual Cortex Of Cetartiodactyla, Primates, and Afrotheria
MetadataShow full item record
Previous studies of the cerebral cortex have utilized the neuropil space as a proxy for connectivity, highlighting structural differences between cortical areas. The following study aims to investigate the distribution of neuropil space across 18 mammalian orders in two cortical areas, sampled from the frontal and occipital lobes. Results indicate a significant difference in neuropil space between cortical areas and species. The anterior cingulate cortex maintained a higher neuropil fraction than the primary visual cortex among all species studied.
