Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To my knowledge there hasn't been a study of the top players.  Back in the 90s a US study used fMRI to look at the neural activity of chess players.  I don't know anymore that than.  A 2003 (?) US study used fMRI to look at novice chess players, I don't remember anything other than the obvious being reported.
