First large-scale study finds topography of cerebral cortex differs with ancestral genetics.


Researchers at the University of California, San Diego have found that the three-dimensional shape of the cerebral cortex, the wrinkled outer layer of the brain controlling many functions of thinking and sensation, strongly correlates with ancestral background. The team state that the findings open the door to more precise studies of brain anatomy going forward and could eventually lead to
