Mindboggling morphometry of human brains

Fig 8

Sulcal fundi.

This figure shows three views of the outside of a single sulcus (taken from the top middle fold in Fig 7) to clearly show a simple example of a fundus (red branching curve). Mindboggle extracts one fundus from each fold by finding the deepest vertices inside the fold, finding endpoints along the edge of the fold, connecting the former to the latter with tracks that run along deep and curved paths, and running a final filtration step. Just as anatomical labels segment folds into sulci, sulcus labels segment fold fundi into sulcal fundi.
