Description

The cerebral cortex consists of distinct layers with unique properties and functions. Previous work has shown that the laminar architecture of cortical regions varies in a spatially ordered fashion along a ‘‘sensory-fugal’’ axis, with decreasing laminar differentiation from the unimodal to transmodal areas. Indeed, the “Structural Model” proposes that the isocortex can be divided into regions with comparable laminar structures, or cortical types, with links to their connections, plasticity and development. In this study, we leveraged the BigBrain map of cortical layers and used a non-linear manifold learning approach to probe along which organisational axes laminar structure covaries in the cortex
