Using bioinformatic profiling of constitutive and behaviorally regulated genes, we propose a novel view of avian brain organization, which group most of the telencephalon into four major cell populations of which three have mirror image counterparts above and below the lateral ventricle that function in columns for sensory-motor systems analogous to the mammalian brain.
