We found positive correlations between the number of myelinated callosal fibres > 1 micron in diameter and age in humans. The relatively abundant axons with diameters between 1 and 3 microns correlated with age only in females, while the scarce fibres > 3 microns in diameter correlated significantly with age only in males. When analysing different callosal segments, it was found that in the midbody (but not in the splenium) of females the number of fibres > 3 microns also increased with age. In… CONTINUE READING
