The Evolution of the Neocortex:
The Gradual Changes in the Allocortex and Para-Isocortex that Led to Isocortical Tissues
Graeme E. Smith, GreySmith Institute of Advanced Studies
The area around the hippocampus has often been called either the Archeocortex, or the Allocortex depending on who was stressing what role for it. Recently a hypothesis has been suggested that the Allocortical tissues came before Isocortical Tissues, and as a result of that hypothesis, the Archeocortex has been looked on from a different perspective, suggesting that it might indicate a fossilized remnant of precursors to both modern Allocortical and Isocortical Tissues. If this hypothesis is correct, then the nature of the evolution of modern Allocortical Tissues and Isocortical tissues might be traced in the transitions of the various tissues in the areas surrounding the hippocampus. In this article I explore this hypothesis more fully.
