Brodmann Areas

Brodmann areas are a useful way of dividing up the brain according to the microarchitecture. I’ve categorised a number of articles on the blog according to the corresponding Brodmann Areas. Some of the articles where the focus is on more than one area are starred. There are also some miscellaneous sections for other structures and a section at the end which looks at localising methods.
