Curvature of the Ferret Brain

  • Philip H. Todd
Part of the Lecture Notes in Biomathematics book series (LNBM, volume 67)


In this chapter we measure the surface curvature of the ferret brain. We analyse the changes in curvature during the process of folding and interpret these changes in terms of different models of folding.
