What can GWAS tell us about the genetic architecture of the human cortex: Results from the ENIGMA consortium GWAS meta-analyses of cortical thickness and surface area

Abstract

While cortical thickness and surface area are both strongly heritable, the two processes are genetically independent and there is little known about the loci influencing these morphological characteristics. We will present... [ view full abstract ]
