The analysis of the human cerebral cortex and the measurement of its thickness based on MRI data provide insight into normal brain development and neurodegenerative disorders. Accurate and reproducible results of the cortical thickness measurement are desired. In addition to data processing tools, the quality (i.e. resolution) of the imaging data is evaluated. We thus compare ultra high resolution data acquired at 7T with 3T data for measuring the cortical thickness of the human brain.
