We used the monoclonal antibody SMI-32 to label pyramidal cells of sensorimotor cortex in two chimpanzees. The majority of the pyramidal cells had typical vertically oriented apical dendrites that extended towards the pial surface. A small population of pyramidal cells varied from this orientation, so that the apical dendrites were 20°or more from radial, and were often inverted, extending away from the pial surface. When numbers of non-inverted and inverted pyramidal cells were compared, less than 1% were found to be inverted.
