Computing Sulcal Curves and the complexity of brain connectivity

Guillermo Sapiro
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

In this talk we will first present a geometric framework for computing sulcii curves. We will then concentrate on new techniques for computing brain matter complexity from diffusion imaging.
