This chapter presents the photomicrographs of the medial, lateral, and basal surfaces of the rhesus monkey cerebral hemisphere that researchers used as the template brain, to show the various sulci. Diagrams representing the medial, lateral, and basal surfaces of the cerebral hemisphere show the various architectonic areas, and photomicrographs of coronal sections of the template brain taken at the levels depicted on the lateral surface of the hemisphere are also shown. The chapter outlines the trajectories in the coronal plane of the various fiber pathways in the experimental cases 1 through 36 and all the summary diagrams correspond to the images shown in these photomicrographs. The photomicrographs also designate the location of the sulci and demarcate the borders of the architectonic areas referred to throughout this book.

Keywords: rhesus monkey brain; cytoarchitecture; nomenclature; photomicrographs; sulci
