2010 NeuroImage  
Our measures were surface area, and average length and depth of eleven primary cortical sulci from high-resolution MR images in 180 pedigreed baboons.  ...  Average heritability values for sulcal area, depth and length (h 2 Area = .38 ± .22; h 2 Depth = .42 ± .23; h 2 Length = .34 ± .22) indicated that regional cortical anatomy is under genetic control.  ...  In the current study, we measure sulcal area, length and depth from high-resolution MR imaging from 180 pedigreed Papio baboons (Papio hamadryas).  ...

Development of structural MR brain imaging protocols to study genetics and maturation

Peter Kochunov, Michael Duff Davis
2010 Methods  
Finally, recent findings in the genetics of cerebral gyrification and tracking of maturation trends in the fetal, newborn and adult brain are described  ...  The sizes of cortical gyri and sulci scale allometrically with brain size.  ...  This work was supported, in part, by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (K01 #EB006395) grant to PK, the SNPRC (NIH #P51-RR013986) and the NIH/NCRR (#1R01AG029412-01) grants  ...

Variations in the length, depth, width, and surface area of these sulcal landmarks have been associated with disease, and may be genetically mediated.  ...  Overall, sulcal width was the most heritable metric, and earlier forming sulci showed higher heritability.  ...  The image processing protocol developed for this work is available at http://enigma.ini. (ENIGMA-Sulci).  ...

Behavioral and brain asymmetries in primates: a preliminary evaluation of two evolutionary hypotheses

2015 Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences  
Lastly, we discuss some of the challenges in the study of hemispheric specialization in primates and offer some suggestions on how to advance the field.  ...  Specifically, we first discuss the evidence of that genes play specific roles in determining leftright differences in anatomical and functional asymmetries in primates.  ...  We would like to thank Yerkes National Primate Research Center and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and their respective veterinary and care staffs for assistance in collection of the  ...
