For example, Goldman-Rakic (1987) has shown that in the monkey projections from parietal cortex to target areas in the prefrontal cortex, such as the principal sulcus, preserve the topographic order of the source neurons. Maps of the surface of the body in the brain are formed during development by projections that become ordered, in part, through competitive interactions between adjacent fibers in the target maps (see chapter 5). Some of the neurons undergo cell death during this period, and with the possible exception of olfactory receptors, no new neurons are formed in the mature mammal (Cowan et al.
