The current research aimed to examine the variation in ventricular size among human brains obtained from cadavers and to look for correlations between ventricle size and age, sex, and side of the brain. The 127 formalin-fixed brain specimens included in the research came from both the Department of Forensic Medicine and the remains of people who volunteered to be studied. When comparing males and females, the study discovered that all measures were bigger on the left side. As a normogram for our local setting, the current research defines morphometric measures of the brain's ventricles that may be used by radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and psychiatrists to make clinical connections.
