The orbital frontal cortex (OFC) plays a critical role in the pathophysiology of several neuropsychiatric disorders. Few morphometric neuroimaging studies have examined the OFC using different methodologies and have reported discrepant values. Substantial variability in gyri and sulci across individuals as well as unclear landmarks underline the difficulties in obtaining accurate and reliable measurements. We propose a new geometrical method for measuring the OFC taking into account individual… CONTINUE READING
