(Sulcal pattern in the human cerebral cortex - Lateral aspect, after von Economo and Koskinas, 1925)

This lithograph is based on an early 20th century map of the human brain by Neurologists Economo and Koskinas, published as part of a 2 volume 800 page atlas, and one of the most important studies of human brain regions in the history of Medicine. The map has been redrawn here as a detailed landscape, to reflect the language used by the researchers when describing the various  fundus or ‘hills’ and sulcus, or ‘valleys’ of the brain; in other words, the brain using the language of landscape to map itself.
