KIBRA rs17070145 and gender have been found to have associations with episodic memory. However, the underlying mechanisms and their combined effects on the brain gray matter volume (GMV) and functional connectivity density (FCD) remain unknown. This study found that KIBRA gene interacted with gender on the GMV and long-range FCD (lrFCD) using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) analysis. These findings underscored the importance of KIBRA and gender interactions as regards to brain structural and functional alterations, which is crucial for the neurobiological understanding of episodic memory.
