Using this open-access dataset allows replication and extension of this work by other researchers. Among the portion of corpus callosumgenu and the narrowest portion of the body were thought to be the most sensitive indicators of degree in hydrocephalus. This patient's disfluency improved after the initiation of immunomodulatory therapy.
Brain MRI was performed in all participants.
Morphometric changes of the corpus callosum in congenital blindness. For permissions, please e-mail: journals. The human brainnetome atlas: a new brain atlas based on connectional architecture. Error would thus be introduced due to partial volume effects, and the fact that the single slice almost always differs from the true midsagittal plane MSP but cannot be corrected.
In DAI, infarctions and MS the lesions involved any part of corpus callosumsplenium in Wilson's disease, and all parts of corpus callosum in hydrocephalus. They were diagnosed as having progressive myoclonic epilepsy case 1localization-related epilepsy case 2brain sex differences corpus callosum location in Regina continua case 3and postinfectious parkinsonism case 4.
However, as brains became much larger, the increasingly longer interhemispheric distance may have worked as a constraint for efficient callosal transmission.
Why sex matters: brain size independent differences in gray matter distributions between men and women. This is the thickest part, and overlaps the tela choroidea of the third ventricle and the midbrainand ends in a thick, convex, free border.
These are the rostrumthe genuthe trunk or bodyand the splenium. It connects the left and right sides of the brainallowing for communication between both hemispheres. Wikimedia Commons. For example, think about height. J Neurosci.
Hydrocephalus was graded as mild, moderate, and severe, and comparison of thickness with normal corpus callosum in each portion was done. Changes in glucose metabolism due to aging and gender-related differences in the healthy human brain. Cereb Cortex.
We have carried out the intracarotid amobarbital injection Wada's test for the determination of the lateralization of cerebral speech dominance. Conclusion: The corpus callosum appears to be a sensitive marker site for the assessment of the extent of white matter injury.
