A new wrinkle: Geometry of brain’s outer surface correlates with genetic heritage: Patterns in sulci and gyri don’t predict cognitive ability, but may help diagnose disease

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, researchers have found. The study opens the door to more precise studies of brain anatomy going forward and could eventually lead to more personalized medicine approaches for diagnosing and treating brain diseases.
