Researchers have identified 76 overlapping genetic locations that determine the shapes of our faces and our brains. The genetic signals that influence face and brain shape are enriched by regions of the genome that regulate gene activity during embryogenesis.
According to researchers dehydration can lead to more errors on task performance. Additionally, fMRI neuroimaging showed dehydration can alter brain structure temporarily.
New findings about the brain's anatomy could lead to personalized medicine approaches for diagnosing and treating neurological disorders.
