Corpus Callosum Morphology in Relation to Cerebral Asymmetries in the Postmortem Human

Francisco aboitiz, andres ide, and ricardo olivares abstract In this chapter we present data of fine callosal structure in postmortem humans revealing regional differences in fiber composition that indicate differences in interhemi-spheric transfer between primary secondary sensorimotor areas, on the one hand, and higher-order cortical regions, on the other. In addition, we review evidence from studies concerning a negative relation between interhemispheric communication and brain...
