As hippocampal volume has been extensively utilized as a diagnosing tool to confirm diagnosis of many neurological disorders, this study aims to employ the high resolution 7T data to segment the hippocampal subfields then correlate their volumes with the age of healthy adults’ population. The region encompassing the subregions left DG, CA2, and CA3 showed significant correlation with age, with a volume variation of approximately -1% per year. Other regions presented a trend towards reductions that did turn into significant. Future work will investigate if differences in the hippocampus subfields are correlated with cognitive performance in this population.
