Using sulcal and gyral measures of brain structure to investigate benefits of an active lifestyle

Lamont, Ashley J; Mortby, Moira E; Anstey, Kaarin; Sachdev, Perminder S; Cherbuin, Nicolas


Background: Physical activity is associated with brain and cognitive health in ageing. Higher levels of physical activity are linked to larger cerebral volumes, lower rates of atrophy, better cognitive function and lesser risk of cognitive decline and dementia. Neuroimaging studies have traditionally focused on volumetric brain tissue 17 measures to test associations between factors of interest (e.g. physical activity) and brain structure. However, cortical sulci may provide additional...[Show more]
