The Differentiated Maturation of the Cerebral Cortex

  • T. Rabinowicz

Abstract

A useful approach to our understanding of the development of the human cerebral cortex is to obtain quantitative data (e.g., neuronal densities, cortical depths) at given ages and on selected areas, thereby gaining a long-range representation of cortical development.
