Function follows form: Understanding brain function from a genetic perspective

AuthorsMarín Parra, Óscar; Gleeson, Joseph G.

AbstractThe advent of modern architectural design in the 20th century brought with it the principle of “Form Follows Function”, first coined by the American architect Louis Sullivan. The idea is simple; the organization of a structure or object should be primarily based upon its intended function or purpose. Neurobiologists have co-opted this principle in studies correlating neurological function within the confines of neuroanatomy. For instance, the analysis of the uniquely organized primary visual part of the cerebral cortex suggested unique aspects of visual processing and sensory relay, which were subsequently borne out experimentally.
