SES & Brain Anatomy (image) Society for Neuroscience Share Print E-Mail Caption Main effects of SES on global and local anatomy, after controlling for age and sex. (A) Standardized effect size of SES on each global cortical and subcortical brain measure estimated using scaled variables: total brain volume (TBV); grey matter volume (GMV); white matter volume (WMV); cortical volume (CV); total cortical surface area (SA); mean cortical thickness (CT); hippocampus volume; amygdala volume; thalamus volume; striatum volume; and pallidum volume. (B) Cortical surface regions that show a significant positive association with childhood SES. (C) Subcortical surface regions that show a significant positive association with childhood SES.
