Abstract

This paper examines the problem of obtaining a mathematical representation of the outer cortex of the human brain, which is a key problem in several applications, including morphological analysis of the brain, and spatial normalization and registration of brain images. A parameterization of the outer cortex is first obtained using a dcformable surface algorithm which, motivated by the structure of the cortex, is constructed to find the central layer of thick surfaces. Based on this parameterization, a hierarchical representation of the outer cortical structure is proposed through its depth map and its curvature maps at various scales. Various experiments on magnetic resonance data are presented.
