Mindboggling morphometry of human brains
This superposition of two box and whisker plots is a comparison between two measures of cortical thickness applied to the 101 Mindboggle-101 brains: Mindboggle’s thickinthehead (black) and FreeSurfer’s thickness (red) measures. FreeSurfer’s thickness is defined per surface mesh vertex, so the red plot was constructed from median thickness values, with one value per labeled region. The pattern of Mindboggle and FreeSurfer thickness measures are very similar across the 62 cortical regions, and differ from each other by one to two millimeters. See text for comparison against published estimates of cortical thickness based on manual delineations of MR images of living brains.
