Brodmann's areas, of cerebral cortex

Image from Korbinian Brodmann's Vergleichende Lokalisationslehre der Grosshirnrinde: in ihren Prinzipien dargestellt auf Grund des Zellenbaues [Comparative theory of localization of the cerebral cortex, presented in its principles on the basis of the cell structure], published in Leipzig in 1909 [accessed at the Wellcome Collection].

Brodmann described his eponymous cortical areas based on the detailed appearance of neuron cell bodies (numbers, sizes, shapes) in the several layers of the cerebral cortex.
