Abstract

Our study performed a quantitative investigation of minicolumns in the planum temporale (PT) of human, chimpanzee, and rhesus monkey brains. This analysis distinguished minicolumns in the human cortex from those of the othernonhuman primates. Human cell columns are larger, contain more neuropil space, and pack more cells into the core area of the column than those of theother primates tested. Because the minicolumn is a basic anatomical and functional unit of the cortex, this strong evidence showed reorganization in this area of the human brain. The relationship between the minicolumn and cortical volume is also discussed. (C) 2001 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
