Sexual Dimorphism in the Parietal Substrate Associated with Visuospatial Cognition Independent of General Intelligence
TLDR
The results suggest that VSC depends more strongly onParietal WM structures in males and on parietal GM structures in females than in females, which might have to do with the increased axonal and decreased somatodendritic tissue in males relative to females.
General intelligence and memory span: Evidence for a common neuroanatomic framework
TLDR
Results indicate that a common anatomic framework for these constructs implicates mainly frontal grey matter regions belonging to Brodmann area (BA) 10 and left middle frontal gyrus and, to a lesser degree, the right inferior parietal lobule (BA 40).
Relationships between IQ and regional cortical gray matter thickness in healthy adults.
TLDR
Positive relationships were found between FSIQ and intracranial gray and white matter but not cerebrospinal fluid volumes, and sex influenced regional relationships; women showed correlations in prefrontal and temporal association cortices, whereas men exhibited correlations primarily in temporal-occipital association Cortices.

Structural brain variation and general intelligence
Sex Differences in Brain Gray and White Matter in Healthy Young Adults: Correlations with Cognitive Performance
TLDR
Both GM and WM volumes correlated moderately with global, verbal, and spatial performance across groups, however, the regression of cognitive performance and WM volume was significantly steeper in women.
Intelligence and brain structure in normal individuals.
TLDR
The results suggest that the size of some cerebral structures may account for a significant, but modest, proportion of the variance in human intelligence.
Sex differences in anatomic measures of interhemispheric connectivity: correlations with cognition in women but not men.
TLDR
A robust sex difference in the splenium of the corpus callosum, reflecting greater interhemispheric connectivity in women, was observed on magnetic resonance images from 114 individuals, based on a new image analysis technique which allows investigation of local variability in brain morphology.
The human cerebral cortex: gender differences in structure and function.
TLDR
Human male and female cerebral cortex display distinct, sexually dimorphic features, which can begin to be linked to a complex array of gender-specific advantages and limitations in cognitive functions.

A Voxel-Based Morphometric Study of Ageing in 465 Normal Adult Human Brains
TLDR
Global grey matter volume decreased linearly with age, with a significantly steeper decline in males, and local areas of accelerated loss were observed bilaterally in the insula, superior parietal gyri, central sulci, and cingulate sulci.
