    Neurobiol Aging 26:1245-60; discussion 1279-82. 2005
    ..Reduction in volume in the hippocampus was best modeled by a cubic regression model rather than a linear model. No sex differences in aging were found for any regions of interest...

    Anat Rec A Discov Mol Cell Evol Biol 288:867-76. 2006
    ..We suggest that the extent of functional reorganization of the occipital region during hominid evolution has been underestimated, and that changes in this region were not just passively shaped by expansion of parietal association cortex...

    John S Allen
    Department of Anthropology, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA
    J Clin Exp Neuropsychol 28:457-76. 2006
