Abstract

After injections of horseradish peroxidase into several areas of the neocortex in the macaque monkey longitudinal bands of labeled cells in the basal nucleus of Meynert related to areas of cortex in the frontal lobe have been found to overlap along their long axes with the bands related to widely separated but interconnected areas of the parieto-temporal cortex. The frontal and parietal lobes are related to the anterior and posterior halves respectively of the nucleus, the temporal cortex to the postero-lateral margin of the nucleus and the occipital lobe to its upturned posterior extension.
