  • Some empirical data suggest that sexual dimorphisms in callosal morphology exist, but findings are not consistently replicated across laboratories. We applied novel computational surface-based methods to encode callosal thickness at high spatial resolution. We further examined whether callosal thickness and related gender effects are influenced by brain size adjustments achieved through data scaling. Significant gender differences were absent in scaled data, and women showed no regional… CONTINUE READING
