There was an article in Spektrum der Wissenschaften (German version of
Scientific American) in May 1989 by Braitenberg and Schuez in which
the authors suggested that the connections between the pyramid cells in the
cerebral cortex are stochastically distributed, so that there is no special
preformed structure. I'm curious to know if this view is commonly shared by
brain physiologists or if it is already out-dated because of newer findings.
Please reply to the net if you consider your information to be interesting
for the public.
