Abstract
During primate, and notably human, evolution, the neocortex increased massively in size. This increase forms the basis of our higher cognitive abilities in comparison to other mammals. In recent years, major advances in understanding this evolutionary expansion have been achieved. Here, we would like to discuss the genetic foundation, principles and mechanisms underlying neocortical expansion.
