We conclude with a discussion of potential cognitive correlates of brain structural maturation. Postmortem studies: Synaptic modification and myelination Prior to the advent of neuroimaging tools, researchers were limited to inferring structural brain changes from postmortem data. Both approaches have distinct advantages and disadvantages. A major concern with postmortem studies is their generalizability, due to the questionable normalcy of participants studied after death and the lack of samples from younger age ranges.
