A brain morphometric analysis of neuroimaging data from the Vietnam Era Twin Registry, demonstrating that cortical thickness and cortical surface area contribute independently to total cortical gray matter in human adult males. This goes conform with the idea of ontogentic columns in the cerebral cortex: The number of cells within such a column would be reflected in cortical thickness, while the number of columns would be reflected in cortical surface area.
Provides a reliability analysis of voxel-based MR morphometric data by comparing MR-based measures obtained from 11 healthy human volunteers, scanned twice (two weeks apart) with four different T1-weighted MP-RAGE pulse sequences.

"Reliability was extremely high for most measures and similar across imaging parameters. Significant measurement bias was observed, however, between MPR and all isotropic sequences for all cortical regions and some subcortical structures. These results suggest that these improvements in MRI acquisition technology do not compromise data reproducibility, but that consistency should be maintained in choosing imaging parameters for structural MRI studies."

Provides data indicating that the level of intelligence during child development correlates more closely with the rate of change of the cortical thickness than with cortical thickness itself.
