The cerebral cortex is the thin outer cloak of grey matter that covers the external surface of the cerebral hemispheres, like the ‘bark’ of a tree, which is indeed what its Latin root refers to. The total area of cortex in man is estimated at nearly a square meter; it is about 4 mm thick, and it contains 10 million or more nerve cells.

The thesis described in the book combines the powerof neuroscience tools with those from cognitive and computer scienceto grapple with this universally recognized puzzle of the mind andbrain. The cerebral cortex, especially that part customarily designated "neocortex," is one of the hallmarks of mammalian evolution and reaches its greatest size, relatively speaking, and its widest structural diversity in the human brain.

Key. Brodmann areas are a system to divide the cerebral cortex according to cytoarchitectural organization, and are, despite controversy, still very widely used as a standardized nomenclature which is superimposed on the somewhat variable gyral and sulcal anatomy.

The classification relies on the fact that the human cortex is composed of six cellular layers, the density and architecture of which. The Cerebral Cortex in Neurodegenerative and Neuropsychiatric Disorders: Experimental Approaches to Clinical Issues focuses on how pre-clinical investigations are addressing the clinical issues surrounding the involvement of the cerebral cortex in selected conditions of the nervous system, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s, addiction, and cardiovascular dysregulation.
