yes, there is a difference if you compute SPC of the average thickness in an
ROI or if you average the SPC computed on a vertex level.
For the second, you can use long_mris_surf to map your third group to fsaverage
and compute SPC, there is an option to write out the stack, then using the
label and that stack you can average the values inside the label. I would do
that in Matlab (read the stack, read the label, select the vertices with that
label and average). Maybe there are other tools for that.
