Locations and patterns of functional brain activity in humans are difficult to compare across subjects because of differences in cortical folding and functional foci are often buried within cortical sulci. Unfolding a cortical surface via flat mapping has become a key method for facilitating the recognition of new structural and functional relationships. Mathematical and other issues involved in flat mapping are the subject of this paper. It is mathematically impossible to flatten curved… CONTINUE READING
