Wednesdays, 3:35 - 4:50 pm
Note: Class meeting times may change when there are guest speakers.
Please contact the instructor to confirm class times.
Instructor: Dr. Monica K. Hurdal
This course is designed to be an introductory seminar for graduate
students wishing to learn about the field of biomathematics, including
different applications of mathematics in
biology and medicine.
This class is graded S/U. Advanced graduate students will be expected to give

Title: Mathematical Models of Human Brain Folding Pattern Formation &
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
