CUELLO, Luis Mariano. Aspectos cuantitativos de la corteza cerebral humana. Rev. argent. neurocir. [online]. 2010, vol.24, suppl.1, pp. S31-S32. ISSN 1850-1532.
It is assumed that the cerebral cortex is an extended nucleus that, because of its volume, has become plied. Several authors give different measures of the cortical volume. It is bigger on the right side because of the major volume of the right frontal lobe. Other assimetries have been described for the planum temporale, the silvian fissure, the inferior frontal gyrus and the lateral ventricle. The cortical thickness varies across its surface, and is estimated by different authors between 1,5 and 5mm. The data vary also after age and size of the individuals, and the total brain weight. The most plied regions are in descending order, the frontal, temporal and parieto occipital association cortices.
