This study aims at determining the relation between
nueropsychological performance in patients with multiple
sclerosis and cortical tissue damage at different depths
through the cortical width up to the juxta-cortical
white matter, across the whole brain. Therefore, we use
a quantitative, surface-based analysis of T
relaxation rates from ultra high resolution 7 Tesla MRI.
