486 subjects, pedigrees
Age 26-85, mean 48, sd 13
Variance components Cortical
Thickness Cortical
Volume Surface-based Volume-based SOLAR Gyrification Index
Sulcal Depth
Curvature Indices h = 0.56-0.92
Cognitive performance Head circumference
CSF volume
Craniometry FreeSurfer
WFU PickAtlas
Harvard-Oxford Atlas Should we correct for
global measurements? Yes No Covariate is not correlated to the measurement under study.
Interested on both regional and global effects on the measurement. Covariate correlated to the measurement under study.
Interested on regional effects only, not global effects. Peper et al., 2007;

Variance across subjects is not only due to subject differences, but different influcences of thickness and area on volume between subjects and brain regions. Carson, 2006. Kremen et al., 2010. Lunde et al., 2007. Reviews Regional Volumes ENIGMA Consortium Highest: Postcentral 0.73; Cingulate, isthmus 0.72; Superior temporal 0.65; Superior frontal 0.63.
