A probabilistic atlas and reference system for the human brain: International Consortium for Brain Mapping (ICBM).
The ability to quantify the variance of the human brain as a function of age in a large population of subjects for whom data is also available about their genetic composition and behaviour will allow for the first assessment of cerebral genotype-phenotype-behavioural correlations in humans to take place in a population this large.
Genetic influences on brain structure
Detailed three-dimensional maps revealing how brain structure is influenced by individual genetic differences are reported, and may shed light on the heritability of cognitive and linguistic skills, as well as genetic liability for diseases that affect the human cortex.
Mapping cortical thickness and gray matter concentration in first episode schizophrenia.
We mapped regional changes in cortical thickness and intensity-based cortical gray matter concentration in first episode schizophrenia. High-resolution magnetic resonance images were obtained from 72
Relationships between IQ and regional cortical gray matter thickness in healthy adults.
Positive relationships were found between FSIQ and intracranial gray and white matter but not cerebrospinal fluid volumes, and sex influenced regional relationships; women showed correlations in prefrontal and temporal association cortices, whereas men exhibited correlations primarily in temporal-occipital association Cortices.
Hemispheric asymmetries in cortical thickness.
Hemispheric differences in the thickness of the cortex might be related to hemisphere-specific functional specializations that are possibly related to behavioral asymmetries.
Gender effects on cortical thickness and the influence of scaling
The gender‐specific findings support a dimorphic organization in male and female brains that appears to involve the architecture of the cortical mantle and that manifests as increased thickness in female brains.
