Mindboggling morphometry of human brains

Fig 10

Relationships between brain shape measures.

In these plots, we compare a pair of shape measures for each vertex of each right cortical region in a representative individual from the Mindboggle-101 brains, colored arbitrarily by region. Top: In this plot comparing two measures of depth, geodesic depth is higher than travel depth, and may exaggerate depth, such as in the insula (gray dots extending to the upper left). Bottom: In this plot of mean curvature by travel depth, we again see that the shape measures are not independent of one another. As one might expect, we see greater curvature at greater depth.
