Peter Arhem, Hans Liljenstrom and B.I.B. Lindahl Consciousness and Comparative Neuroanatomy Report on the Agora Workshop in Sigtuna, Sweden, on 21 August, 2002
Abstract:In recent years new findings in vertebrate neuroanatomy have challenged received views on the evolution of the brain. Established theories suggesting that new structures are added to older structures or that old structures are modified into new ones are being re-evaluated. Modification processes, such as invasion and parcellation, have proved to be less valid than originally assumed. Discoveries of neuroanatomical homologies add to the cladistic interpretation problems. (For an overview, see Butler & Hodos, 1996.)
