Hi-regarding Sagan and naive brain structure, it is more than likely he is
using Paul McLean's lifelong work on the "Triune Brain" (PL has lengthy book
by that title but I don't have the full reference handy).  Anyway, PL has a
surprising amount of evidence at anatomical, biochemical, and behavior levels
of analysis for his conjecture.  While PL almost certainly has cartooned the
evolution of brains, the evidence he has collected--much of it his own work at
NIH?--is very interesting.  regards, John Limber, Psychology UNH
