Title: Mathematical Models of Human Brain Folding Pattern Formation & Characterization
In this presentation I will give an overview of my research involving cortical pattern formation and conformal flat maps of the human brain. I will discuss some of biological theories of cortical folding pattern formation and some of the mathematical models I am developing to help answer questions regarding cortical folding pattern development and cortical malformation diseases.
