UW-Madison’s Sánchez co-authors ‘Puberty in the Corpus Callosum’

April 06, 2014

UW-Madison’s Francisco Sánchez is the co-author of a paper that was recently published in the international journal Neuroscience.

The report is titled “Puberty in the Corpus Callosum.”

The paper’s abstract notes:  “Adolescence is an important period for brain development. White matter growth is influenced by sex hormones such as testosterone, and the corpus callosum -- the largest white matter structure in the human brain -- may change structurally during the hormone-laden period of adolescence. Little is known about puberty's relationship to structural brain development, even though pubertal stage may better predict cognitive and behavioral maturity than chronological age. We therefore aimed to establish the presence and direction of pubertal effects on callosal anatomy.”

Sánchez is an assistant professor with the Department of Counseling Psychology.
