Broadmann, Korbinian
 
 
(b. 1868, Liggersdorf, Germany, d. 1918, Munich). M.D., University of Leipzig, 1898. His recognition that the human cortex is organized anatomically in the same way as the cortex of all other mammals enabled him to map it and to classify cortical types and layers on the basis of the morphogenesis of the cortex.
 

Details:
 
Brodmann did all of his important work between 1901 and 1910 at the Neurobiological Institute in Berlin. His recognition that the human cortex is organized anatomically in the same way as the cortex of all other mammals enabled him to map it and to classify cortical types and layers on the basis of the morphogenesis of the cortex. His work culminated with the publication of Vergleichende Lokalisationslehre der Grosshirnrinde in 1909.
