Topographical variation of the human primary cortices: implications for neuroimaging, brain mapping, and neurobiology.
Direct reference to the landmarks that frame these fields may be expected to be a more reliable basis for functional mapping thanreference to a template or stereotactic coordinate-based system of reference to a standard or idealized brain.
In vivo evidence of structural brain asymmetry in musicians
In vivo magnetic resonance morphometry of the brain in musicians was used to measure the anatomical asymmetry of the planum temporale, a brain area containing auditory association cortex and previously shown to be a marker of structural and functional asymmetry.
Motor cortex and hand motor skills: Structural compliance in the human brain
The size of the ILPG was negatively correlated with age of commencement of musical training in keyboard players, supporting the hypothesis that the human motor cortex can exhibit functionally induced and long‐lasting structural adaptations.
Asymmetry in the Human Motor Cortex and Handedness
Using magnetic resonance morphometry, it is shown for the first time that the depth of the central sulcus is related to handedness.
The Neural Circuitry Involved in the Reading of German Words and Pseudowords: A PET Study
Silent reading and reading aloud of German words and pseudowords were used in a PET study using (15O) butanol to examine the neural correlates of reading and of the phonological conversion of legal
Brain size and grey matter volume in the healthy human brain
It is suggested that brain size is the main variable determining the proportion of grey matter, with larger brains exhibiting relatively smaller proportions ofgrey matter.
The relationship between corpus callosum size and forebrain volume.
Empirical support is lent to the hypothesis that brain size may be an important factor influencing interhemispheric connectivity and lateralization by moderate linear and quadratic correlations and the previously described gender differences in CC anatomy may be better explained by an underlying effect of brain size.
Gender differences in cortical complexity
Using a new three-dimensional analytic technique with magnetic resonance imaging, greater gyrification in women than men in frontal and parietal regions is found.
