Intrinsic curvature: a marker of millimeter-scale tangential cortico-cortical connectivity?

Author(s): L. Ronan, R. Pienaar, G. Williams, E. Bullmore, T. J. Crow, N. Roberts, P. B. Jones, J. Suckling, P. C. Fletcher

In this paper, we draw a link between cortical intrinsic curvature and the distributions of tangential connection lengths. We suggest that differential rates of surface expansion not only lead to intrinsic curvature of the cortical sheet, but also to differential inter-neuronal spacing. We propose that there follows a consequential change in the profile of neuronal connections: specifically an enhancement of the tendency towards proportionately more short connections. Thus, the degree of cortical intrinsic curvature may have implications for short-range connectivity.
