Older-looking brains linked to lower birth weight and genes
Nov. 11, 2021
In brain scans of almost 1500 people throughout Europe, researchers of the Lifebrain consortium found that people with “older-looking” brains had both lower birth weight and genes for smaller brains, compared with those with normal ageing brains.
