Reference neuroanatomical brain data are required to validate qMRI microstructural metrics and link them to histological measures. The BigBrain dataset provides unique cytoarchitectonic 3D atlas based on several post-mortem human brains. We aim to complement the BigBrain atlas by ultrahigh-resolution quantitative multi-parameter maps. Here, we present ultra-high resolution quantitative multi-parameter maps (MPM) acquired at 3T and 7T on a post-mortem brain. We demonstrate high data quality and feasibility of cortical layer and subcortical nuclei analysis. The brain will be processed following the BigBrain cytoarchitectonic atlasing procedure and will reveal specific qMRI fingerprints of cortical areas with distinct cytoarchitecture.
