The surface of the cerebral cortex is folded in large mammals, such that more than two-thirds of it in the human brain is buried in the grooves, called "sulci". The phylogenetically most recent part of the cerebral cortex, the neocortex (also called isocortex), is differentiated into six horizontal layers;  ancient part of the cc, the hippocampus, has three cellular layers, and divided into subfields. Neurons in various layers connect vertically to form small microcircuits, called columns.
