Twin studies have found that global brain volumes, including total intracranial volume (ICV), total gray matter, and total white matter volumes are highly heritable in adults and older children. Very little is known about genetic and environmental contributions to brain structure in very young children and whether these contributions change over the course of development. We performed structural imaging on a 3T MR scanner of 217 neonatal twins, 41 same-sex monozygotic, 50 same-sex dizygotic… CONTINUE READING
