Mindboggling morphometry of human brains

Curvature per vertex.

Mindboggle computes curvature for each surface mesh vertex. Left: Lateral view of a left cortical hemisphere colored by mean curvature per vertex, where color indicates surface curving away from (purple for negative curvature) or toward (yellow for positive curvature) the local, outward-pointing normal vector. If the surface is locally flat or between negative and positive curvatures, the color is greenish-blue. Right: Mean curvature on the sulcus folds.
