Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Enlarged cortical sulci affect the executive and motor functions.

But learning abilities and new memories may be still acquired.

These abilities are affected if there is subcortical prominence as well ( mesiotemporal and diencephalon region arond third ventricle and temporal horns around the lateral ventricles).
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
