Brodmann Areas
In 1909, Korbinian Brodmann, a German anatomist, subdivided the human cerebral cortex into 47 separate areas based on cyto-architectural differences. It is now evident that cytoarchitectonic differences correlate to functional specializations of identified cortical areas (structure-function relationships).
We will concentrate our effort on only a
handful of the
47 Brodmann
Areas
Brodmannís sample size was an N of 1

Ventricles are derived from the embryonic vesicle cavities.
