Microstructural proliferation in human cortex is coupled with the development of face processing

The development of face-selective regions, but not place-selective regions, is associated with microstructural proliferation in the human cortex, thereby suggesting a new model by which emergent brain function not only results from cortical pruning but also from cortical tissue proliferation.
