Genome size, secondary simplification, and the evolution of the brain in salamanders.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9209766
    "Compared to other vertebrates, even including lampreys and hagfishes in some respects, salamanders exhibit a relatively simple organization of brain and sense organs"
    "Phylogenetic analysis shows that the most parsimonious interpretation of these data is that the simple organization of the brain and sense organs of salamanders was derived secondarily from a more complex ancestral state."
