Mindboggling morphometry of human brains

Comparison between cortical depth measures.

This superposition of two box and whisker plots is a comparison between two measures of cortical surface depth applied to the 101 Mindboggle-101 brains: Mindboggle’s travel depth and geodesic depth. These surface measures are computed for every mesh vertex, so the plots were constructed from median depth values, with one value per labeled region. The pattern of geodesic depth and travel depth measures are very similar across the 62 cortical regions, but deviate considerably for the insular regions (far right); this is not surprising, given that geodesic paths are very sensitive to gradual changes in depth and to cavities.
