Abstract: This study and the sequel paper revisit landmark discoveries that paved the way to the definition of the renowned Brodmann areas in the human cerebral cortex, in an attempt to rectify certain undeserved historical neglects. A 'first period of discoveries,' from 1867 to 1882, is represented by the work of neuropsychiatrists Theodor Meynert (1833-1892) in Vienna, Vladimir Betz (1834-1894) in Kiev and William Bevan-Lewis (1847-1929) in Wakefield. Their classical findings are placed in a modern perspective.
