Genetic Variations Linked To Brain Size

Thursday, August 20, 2009 - 09:21 in Biology & Nature

Using advanced brain imaging and genomics technologies, researchers show for the first time that natural variations in a specific gene influence brain structure. By establishing this link, the researchers have opened the door to a range of potential research efforts that could reveal gene variations responsible for a number of neurological conditions such as autism.
