About this book

By means of quantitative analysis of the tissue components in the cortex of the mouse, this book presents an overall picture of the cortical network which is then related to various theories on cortical function. It is centered around the idea of a diffuse network in a fairly homogeneous population of excitatory neurons, that of the pyramidal cells. It shows that the whole organisation in the cortical skeleton of pryramidal cells correspondes well to the idea of an associative memory and to the theory of cell assemblies.The theoretical points are made on the basis of experimental results.
The reader not only obtains information about quantitative neuroanatomy, but also on the methods used, in particular those that vary from the norm.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:
"Textbooks of anatomy are usually extremely boring. Anatomy of the Cortex is fascinating!" Network (JOP)
"Braitenberg and Schüz have produced a masterpiece on the neurobiological foundations of cognitive psychology." Contemporary Psychology
