Preschool Externalizing Behavior Predicts Gender-Specific Variation in Adolescent Neural Structure

Fig 2

Greater externalizing behavior in preschool correlates with smaller male amygdala volume.

A) Representative coronal view of the amygdala with key neuroanatomical landmarks denoted: AMG = amygdala; EC = entorhinal cortex; HH = hippocampal head; OT = optic tract; TLV = temporal horn of the lateral ventricle; TLWM = temporal lobe white matter. B) Correlation of preschool externalizing with amygdala volumes (upper panel: male r = -0.653, p = 0.000029; female r = -0.088, p = 0.578).
