Abstract

Authors analysed the corpus callosum of Korean(27 male & 14 female) anthrolopologically by the method of Kappers and Ban, and obtained the following results ; 1. The mean height of corpus callosum of the Korean male was about 25.9mm and that of the female was about 25.6mm. 2. The mean length of corpus callosum of the Korean male was about 69.1mm and that of the female was about 69.9mm. 3. According to the callosum horizontal index, the length of the cerebral hemisphere of the Korean male was about 2.22 times longer than that of the corpus callosum, and that of the female was about 2.27 times longer. 4. According to the callosum parietal index, the height of parietal lobe of the Korean male and female was about 2.8 times higher than that of corpus callosum. 5. The mean value of the callosum index of Korean was about 0.374, which was greater than that of the Japanese and Chinese, but lesser than that of Battak. 6. The most common type of corpus callosum of the Korean was the type III and VI, but the type I and X were not appeared. 7. According to the type distribution in relation to the callosum horizontal index, the type VI at callosum horizontal index 0.44 was the most common types.
