A. Bets was engaged in scientific research in the field of anatomy, clinical medicine, and also chemistry and physics. V. A. Bets — one of founders of the doctrine about to very tectonics of a cerebral cortex (see). The principle of an unequal structure of various parts of a cerebral cortex is the cornerstone of its doctrine. In 1874 it described gigantopiramidalny neurocytes (large pyramidal cells) of a cerebral cortex which received the name of colossal pyramidal cells of Bets. The very tectonic partition of a cerebral cortex offered them on the main areas is accepted also in a crust, time.
V. A. Bets claimed that the morphology of bark needs to be considered not only from the point of view of its macroscopic structure, expressiveness of convolutions of the brain, but also microscopic; established the principle of topographical mobility of structures which is the cornerstone of modern studying of a problem of variability of a cerebral cortex and evolution of bark in its historical development. V. A. Bets conducted a histologic research of a cerebral cortex of the person on 8000 drugs of a brain made by it systematized according to separate sections. In 1890 he published the atlas of a human brain.
