Cortical gyrification and its relationships with cortical volume, cortical thickness, and cognitive performance in healthy mid-life adults

Gautam, Prapti; Anstey, Kaarin; Wen, Wei; Sachdev, Perminder S.; Cherbuin, Nicolas

Description

Across species, greater cortical gyrification, or folding of the cortex, has been shown to be associated with higher cognitive abilities and is thought to reflect an evolutionary process aimed at maximizing the number of cerebral computational units while minimizing the energy and communication costs of larger brains. Relatively little is known about the significance of individual variation in gyrification in humans and how it relates to other aspects of cerebral structure and function. In the...[Show more]
