The authors measured the T1 and T2 of cerebral tissue in 164 volunteers aged 5-90 years and correlated T1 and T2 with age, gender, and various demographic variables. A weak correlation with statistical significance was found between age and T1 and T2 in white and gray matter structures. The T1 and T2 in the telencephalon increased by about 0.1% per year. No correlation of T1 or T2 with any other demographic, life-style, or medical factors was found.
