  4. 4. The aging brain and changes in cognitive performance : Findings from morphometry and quantitative susceptibility mapping of iron

We used two contrasts from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), namely spin-lattice T1-weighted imaging, and quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) from gradient-echo images, to picture the aging brain, by means of morphometric measures and brain-iron concentrations.
