Neuroticism study

A neuroimaging study using magnetic resonance imaging to measure brain volume found that the brain volume was negatively correlated to NEO PI-R neuroticism when correcting for possible effects of intracranial volume, sex, and age.

My translation: The more neurotic you are, the smaller your brain!!! 😀
