Mindboggling morphometry of human brains

Geodesic depth and travel depth per vertex.

Mindboggle computes geodesic depth (left) and travel depth (right) for each surface mesh vertex. This medial view of the sulcus folds from the left cortical hemisphere is colored by depth, with the deepest vertices in yellow. Note that the deepest vertices according to geodesic depth reside toward the center of the insula (center fold), whereas the deepest vertices according travel depth run along the deepest furrows of the insula, as one would expect.
