Abstract:

This DBP project identifies genes associated with brain structural and functional connectivity in a large sample (N=1150) of well-characterized monozygotic and dizygotic twins. The Queenland PI, Margie Wright, is the recipient of an NIH grant, and has published over 40 journal papers with LONIR, using our tools for cortical surface analysis, tensor-based morphometry, DTI analysis, and tractography. The twin data has also stimulated the development of DTI and HARDI analysis and visualization tools.
