Summary

The boundaries of neo-and allocortical areas of Galago demidovii are analyzed with an automatic quantitative procedure using an image analyzer. The results are summarized in a cortical map and compared with a cortical map of Tupaia. Galago shows a highly differentiated temporal lobe and no homogeneous peristriate area comparable to the classical concept of Brodmann's Area 19. Primary motor, somatosensory, auditory, and visual areas are delineated and shown to be surrounded by distinct secondary areas.
