    ..28 for neocortex. The 95% confidence intervals for our estimates of these two exponents do not overlap. This difference likely reflects differences in the connectivity and/or micro-structure of white matter in the two regions...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 101:3962-6. 2004
    ..94 (95% confidence interval, 0.82-1.07). This finding supports the idea that there are substantial differences in frontal cortex structure and development between the two groups...

    Biology Division, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California, USA
    Anat Rec A Discov Mol Cell Evol Biol 281:1088-94. 2004
    ..V1 scaling may have to do with the tendency of large brains to be more compartmentalized than small brains, or V1 scaling might reflect the geometry of information representation...

    ..An approach to identifying these involves comparing multiple genomes to identify conserved regions with an accelerated substitution rate in a particular lineage. Such acceleration could be the result of positive selection...
