University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Cognitive Evolution Group, New Iberia, LA 70560, USA
Cereb Cortex 12:671-91. 2002..The calbindin-rich compartments in human layer 4A cannot be related to a particular geniculostriate pathway on neurochemical grounds; they may constitute an interneuronal population that increased in human evolution...
