Paper Abstract

We have recently entered a period of heightened awareness about the significance of human body geometry at all levels of organization from the subcellular to the organismic. In particular, the study of subtle variations in the irregular three dimensional form of the heart, the brain, and the spine has attracted substantial research interest. This trend has been amply demonstrated in the papers presented over the last three days. Several of the reports provide insights which point the way for many years of further research. The wide ranging scope of the symposium makes it difficult to summarize, but perhaps an attempt should be made to document some of the more important developments leading up to this meeting and, also, see if we can predict where biostereometrics is going.
