Published on Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, the study by researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, which is part of the McGill University Health Centre, sought to explain the high rates of certain health issues and a possible genetic link.

While figures for the rate of brain aneurysm among Nunavik Inuit, a relatively small population at about 13,000, are not tracked, the prevalence was observed through visits to the Montreal General Hospital, where Nunavik residents are flown for medical treatment.
