Stochastical organisation of cortex?

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.
