El desarrollo de estas arquitecturas no hubiese sido posible si no se acompanara de una serie de cambios en la base neural, comenzando por el aumento de volumen de la corteza cerebral, que conllevo, ademas, a un aumento en el metabolismo neuronal, resuelto efectivamente por el aumento en la proporcion de neuroglia, con lo cual la transmision sinaptica se hizo mas efectiva y permitio la complejidad de las funciones del sistema nervioso (Blazquez & Pelaez, 2013).
