Download Citation | Atlas of Cytoarchitectonics of the Adult Human Cerebral Cortex | First English edition of a rare gem in the neurological sciences A . edition of the Atlas of Cytoarchitectonics of the Adult Human Cerebral Cortex of Constantin von Economo and Georg N. Koskinas, one of the greatest – and rar-est – classics in the neuroscience literature. With this work, Economo and Koskinas defi ned their cytoarchitectonic cortical modifi cation areas for the human brain.   The rich variation in cytoarchitectonics of the human cortex is well known to play an important role in the differentiation of cortical information processing, with functional multimodal areas noted to display more branched, more spinous, and an overall more complex cytoarchitecture. In parallel, connectome studies have suggested that also the macroscale wiring profile of brain . Instead, the average cross-sectional area of neuron somata doubles from L2 to deep L3 in human supragranular cortex in a graded fashion but .

Cortical cytoarchitectonics has had a chequered history. Beginning with Meynert's discovery of the systematic layering of neurons in the cerebral cortex and with Betz's discovery of the giant cells that bear his name, and initially influenced by phrenological ideas, over the years it has gone in and out of favour as conceptual fashions and methods of investigation have changed.

The primary motor cortex (Brodmann’s area 4) shows a characteristic cytoarchitecture which is reflected by GLI profiles (Fig. 1A).The low GLI value of area 4 indicates that the volume fraction of cell body is low but that the space between cell bodies, i.e., the neuropil, is larger than in any other cortical area.
