This is a German translation of a monographic study by a Swedish pathologist. It embodies the results of a thorough investigation of the capillary bed of forty-four cortical areas (thirteen of the frontal lobe, four of the insula, three of the occipital lobe, eight of the parietal lobe, ten of the temporal lobe and six of the lobus limbicus superior). The study, thus, represents the most ambitious attempt to date of mapping out the distribution pattern and relative richness of cortical capillaries through the entire depth of the gray matter in the major portions of the isocortex. To the reviewer's knowledge, complete brain maps of the lateral and sagittal aspects are illustrated for the first time in which the various degrees of differentiation of the capillary pattern are shown, similar to the usual brain maps which emphasize differences in cytoarchitecture. For each chosen area comparisons were made between the capillary
