Surface-based analysis demonstrates that cortical thickness is associated with cognitive scores. a Learning and memory abilities are related to cortical thickness in temporal cortex and medial parietal cortex. b Performance on fluency and naming tests are associated with thickness in temporal and medial parietal cortex. c Visuospatial function and processing speed are related to thickness in inferior and lateral temporal, and medial and lateral parietal cortex. Plots are in -log(P value) scale and vertex values range from -log (4) to -log (8). Warm colors indicate that thicker cortex is related to better cognitive performance. For multiple-comparisons correction, a cluster-forming threshold of -log(P value) > 4 or P value < 0.0001, and a cluster-wise threshold P value < 0.05 were used. Results are shown for the same cognitive tests as Fig. 1. Results for the rest of the cognitive tests can be found in Additional file 1: Figure S1b.
