The modern era of research in the structure of the cerebral cortex … was carried further by the delineation of the cellular layers of the cerebral cortex…. Bevan-Lewis (1878) established the general existence of pyramidal cells in Meynert's fifth layer and divided the cortex into six cellular layers. Bevan-Lewis's diagram was later adopted by Vogt and Brodmann, and is still in general use today despite repeated changes in the designations or names of the cortical layers.
