Many studies of monozygotic (MZ) twins have revealed evidence of genetic influences on intellectual functions and their derangement in certain neurologic and psychiatric diseases afflicting the forebrain. Relatively little is known about genetic influences on the size and shape of the human forebrain and its gross morphologic subdivisions. Using MRI and quantitative image analysis techniques, we examined neuroanatomic similarities in MZ twins and their relationship to head size and intelligence… CONTINUE READING
