One of the most intriguing problems in brain research is the high interpersonal variability of the human cortical folding. In this talk, a sequence of image analysis procedures applied to magnetic resonance imaging data will be presented that may help to shed some light on this problem. The aim of these procedures is to extract a generic model of the human cortical folding and to infer rules that govern the formation of cortical folds.
