We present a novel intra-cortical boundary estimated from high-resolution T1 images where cortical layer structure is visible. The boundary between deeper myelinated cortical layers and more superficial ones can be used to derive two morphometric measures of local myeloarchitecture: myelinated cortical thickness and myelinated thickness ratio. We compare group averages of these two contrasts to T1 and total cortical thickness, and discuss their relevance to brain mapping and plasticity studies.
