The structure, function, and connectivity of the brain changes considerably as we age1–4. Recent advances in MRI physics and neuroimaging have led to the development of new techniques which allow researchers to map quantitative parameters sensitive to key histological brain factors such as iron and myelination5–7. These quantitative techniques reveal the microstructure of the brain […]
