Evidence for training-related gray matter changes have been reported in several studies [1,2,3]. However, changes detected with gray matter VBM can potentially be due to global or local intensity changes, lesions, morphological changes, and/or thickness changes. Here we specifically test for changes in cortical thickness over time taking advantage of the longitudinal processing stream of FreeSurfer.
