The cortical magnification matrix M is introduced founded on a notion similar to that of the scalar cortical magnification factor M. Unlike M, this matrix is suitable to describe anisotropy in cortical magnification, which is of particular interest in the highly gyrified human cerebral cortex. The advantage of our tensor method over other surface-based 3D methods to explore cortical morphometry is that M expresses cortical quantities in the corresponding sensory space. It allows us to…

Correction of Distortion in Flattened Representations of the Cortical Surface Allows Prediction of V1-V3 Functional Organization from Anatomy
TLDR
A mass-spring-damper simulation is used to create a registration between functional MRI retinotopic mapping data of visual areas V1, V2, and V3 and an algebraic model ofretinotopy, indicating that the registration reflects the ret inotopic organization of visual cortex.
Orientation Maps in V1 and Non-Euclidean Geometry
In the primary visual cortex, the processing of information uses the distribution of orientations in the visual input: neurons react to some orientations in the stimulus more than to others. In many
Bayesian Analysis of Retinotopic Maps
TLDR
This work developed a novel Bayesian mapping approach which combines observation–a subject’s retinotopic measurements from small amounts of fMRI time–with a prior–a learned retInotopic atlas, which automatically draws areal boundaries, corrects discontinuities in the measured maps, and predicts validation data more accurately than an atlas alone or independent datasets alone.
Cortical hot spots and labyrinths: why cortical neuromodulation for episodic migraine with aura should be personalized
TLDR
The numerical simulations suggest that these target structures for neuromodulation are like fingerprints, they are individual features of each migraine sufferer, and the goal in the future will be to provide individualized neural tissue simulations.
Hot spots and labyrinths: Why neuromodulation devices for episodic migraine should be personalized
TLDR
The numerical simulations suggest that these target structures for neuromodulation are like fingerprints, they are individual features of each migraine sufferer, and the goal in the future will be to provide individualized neural tissue simulations.
Migraine generator network and spreading depression dynamics as neuromodulation targets in episodic migraine.
TLDR
It is suggested that the migraine generator network (MGN) is driven and may therefore respond differently to different spatio-temporal noxious input in the migraine subtypes MWA and MWoA.
Nucleation of reaction-diffusion waves on curved surfaces
We study reaction-diffusion waves on curved two-dimensional surfaces, and determine the influence of curvature upon the nucleation and propagation of spatially localized waves in an excitable medium

Human cortical magnification factor and its relation to visual acuity
TLDR
Calculated magnification factor in man and compared it to human visual acuity indicated that the reciprocal of M is directly proportional to the minimum angle of resolution and, correspondingly, that the magnification factor is direct proportional tovisual acuity in man.
The representation of the visual field on the cerebral cortex in monkeys
TLDR
On the basis of his extensive and elegant anatomical investigations on the visual cortex, Poliak (1932) suggested that a mathematical projection of the retina on the cerebral cortex must exist and this work has made such a surface, folded it and compared it with the calcarine cortex of the monkey.
Spatial mapping in the primate sensory projection: Analytic structure and relevance to perception
TLDR
It is shown that if this global structure is reiterated at the local level, then the sequence regularity of the simple cells of area 17 may be accounted for as well and the observed curve of cortical magnification, the linear scaling of receptive field size with eccentricity, and the mapping of global visual field landmarks.
Functional topographic mapping of the cortical ribbon in human vision with conventional MRI scanners
TLDR
To compare the spatial topographies across subjects, computer algorithms were used to control for the subject-unique folding of cortex, providing a flattened cortical ribbon identifying four topographically distinct areas.
