Asymmetries of the central sulcus in young adults: Effects of gender, age and sulcal pattern

Sulcal Pattern Variability and Dorsal Anterior Cingulate Cortex Functional Connectivity Across Adult Age

The modulation of rsFC by the age-sulcal pattern interaction indicates that the effects of sulcal pattern variability on the functional architecture of the dACC may change over adulthood, with potential repercussions for brain network efficiency and cognitive function in aging.

Developmental changes of the central sulcus morphology in young children.

The relationship between the changes in the depth of the central sulcus with respect to age is investigated, and the presence of a rightward depth asymmetry at 12 months of age is suggested to be related to the development of language skills.

Age-related changes in brain structural covariance networks

The results of this study demonstrate age-related changes in the topological organization of SCNs, and provide insights into normal aging of the human brain.

Morphological changes in the central sulcus of children with isolated growth hormone deficiency versus idiopathic short stature

There were significant morphological changes in the three‐dimensional structure of the central sulcus in children with IGHD, which were the outcome of other more essential cortical or subcortical changes, resulting in their relatively slower development in motor, cognitive, and linguistic functional performance.

Cortical complexity estimation using fractal dimension: A systematic review of the literature on clinical and nonclinical samples

Overall, the included papers indicate that cortical complexity is likely to reduce during aging and in various pathological processes affecting the brain.

Classification of Alzheimer's Disease from MRI Using Sulcal Morphology

Sulcal morphology is affected by AD atrophy, indicates significant differences between cognitively normal (CN) and AD subjects, and proves to be a potential AD biomarker.

Age-related decrements in cortical gyrification: Evidence from an accelerated longitudinal dataset

Results suggest that age changes in sulcal morphology underlie changes in gyrification in healthy adults, and follow a distinct gradient along the cortex relative to age effects on cortical thickness.



Mapping surface variability of the central sulcus in musicians.

The findings suggest that the musicians might be associated with plastic changes in the 3D morphology of the CS in response to long-term motor skill training.

Cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses of anatomical sulcal changes associated with aging.

Results indicate cross-sectional age effects in mean thickness, GM volume, sulcal depth, and curvature characteristics of sulcal regions and longitudinal decreases in surface area,mean thickness,GM volume, and sulcal Depth measures as well as changes in sulcal curvature.

Age‐related morphology trends of cortical sulci

Sulcal age-related trends were found to be highly influenced by gender in the superior temporal, collateral, and cingulate sulci (P < 0.05), with males showing more pronounced age‐related change in sulcal width than females.

The central sulcus: an observer-independent characterization of sulcal landmarks and depth asymmetry.

A novel method combining automated sulcus reconstruction, surface parameterization, and an observer-independent depth measurement was applied to study the central sulcus to facilitate the quantitative assessment of the spatial position and intersubject variability of several sulcal landmarks.

Three-dimensional reconstruction of the human central sulcus reveals a morphological correlate of the hand area.

The data suggest that the 3D anatomy of the cerebral cortex may facilitate sulcal recognition, and sulcal subdivision into smaller morphological elements, bearing remarkable relationships with functional cortical maps.

Thinning of the cerebral cortex in aging.

It is demonstrated that cortical thinning occurs by middle age and spans widespread cortical regions that include primary as well as association cortex.

High consistency of regional cortical thinning in aging across multiple samples.

Age effects on cortical thickness were seen in the superior and inferior frontal gyri, as well as superior parts of the temporal lobe, and the temporo-parietal junction in relation to leading theories of cognitive aging.

Three-Dimensional Statistical Analysis of Sulcal Variability in the Human Brain

The variability in location and geometry of five sulci surveyed in each hemisphere of six postmortem human brains placed within the Talairach stereotaxic grid is described and implications of cortical morphometric variability for multisubject comparisons and brain mapping applications are discussed.

Structure of the human sensorimotor system. I: Morphology and cytoarchitecture of the central sulcus.

Although the positions of the cytoarchitectonic boundaries in the paracentral lobule showed considerable interindividual variation, the locations of the borders of areas 4 and 3 along the course of the sulcus were similar among the 40 hemispheres examined and provide a basis for evaluating lateral symmetry of the human primary sensorimotor cortex.

Location of the central sulcus via cortical thickness of the precentral and postcentral gyri on MR.

Cortical thickness measurements across the central sulcus provide a method for locating the primary motor (precentral gyri) and primary somatosensory (postcentral Gyri) cortices and corresponds with known cytoarchitectonic relationships.
