Uncovering the genetic characterization of hippocampal subfields

There is clear evidence that hippocampal subfields volumes have partly distinct genetic determinants associated with specific biological processes. The identification of genetic correlates of hippocampal subfield volumes may help to elucidate the mechanisms of neurological diseases, as well as ageing and neurodegenerative processes. However, despite the emerging interest in this area of research, the current knowledge of the genetic architecture of hippocampal subfields has not yet been consolidated.

We aimed to investigate the influential genetic effects on hippocampal subfields.
