Frontiers | The Evolution of the Brain, the Human Nature of Cortical Circuits, and Intellectual Creativity | Frontiers in Neuroanatomy

The tremendous expansion and the differentiation of the neocortex constitute two major events in the evolution of the mammalian brain. The increase in size and complexity of our brains opened the way to a spectacular development of cognitive and mental skills. This expansion during evolution facilitated the addition of archetypical microcircuits, which increased the complexity of the human brain...
