Paper Abstract

Studies in experimental neuroscience have found some evidence showing that the shapes of cortical surfaces of human brains might have certain connection with the neural functioning. This paper presents a morphological study of the cortical surfaces. The work consists of four major elements. First, we collect a sufficient number of 3D MRI datasets of brains that belong to different categories of people. Second, we extract the cortical surfaces from the 3D MRI datasets. Third, we apply statistical analysis to characterize the morphological features of the cortical surfaces. The last component is 3D visualization to illustrate the shapes and characteristics of cortical surfaces in an interactive environment.
