Incomprehensible[edit]

There are several inconsistencies and contradictions which make the article incomprehensible.

"[Archicortex] is any cortex with fewer than six layers, specifically three layered hippocampal cortexes." and the immediately following "[Archicortex] is necessary for hippocampus formation." and finally "Signals being sent from the limbic lobe to the hippocampal formations can go via the archicortex as an intermediate."

The first sentence unambiguously states that the hippocampus is part of the archicortex, while the second suggests that the archicortex and the hippocampal formation are two seperate structures by stating that the hippocampal formation is dependent upon the archicortex (and thus not part of it). Finally, the last sentence also indicates that the hippocampus is not archicortex, by stating that input to the hippocampus might enter via the archicortex, whereas if the hippocampus was part of the archicortex, this last sentence would be tautological.

The spelling mistakes also don't do the article any good.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.89.79.42 (talk) 17:39, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

something is fishy[edit]

Compare first sentence of this article to the one of paleocortex: Paleocortex is a type of cortical tissue that consists of three cortical laminae (layers of neuronal cell bodies).[1] In comparison, the neocortex has six layers and the archicortex has three or four layers.

Archicortex is a type of cortical tissue that consists of three cortical laminae (layers of neuronal cell bodies).[1] It has fewer laminae than both neocortex, which has six, and paleocortex, which has either four or five.

  I'm no expert nor a wiki-editor, just wanted to raise awareness!  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.210.14.58 (talk) 09:15, 23 April 2014 (UTC) 

Merge proposal[edit]

Propose merge of Archicortex into Allocortex. This is a stub, and is a subtopic of allocortex. Information on one page could provoke its improvement. Iztwoz (talk) 11:46, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
