This 1¼-hour course is a part of the Clinical Intensive Neuro Course and will focus on the fundamentals of measuring cortical folding (cortical cartography). The topics to be covered by expert speakers are:
« The application of cartography to cortical folding during brain development; and
« The use of cartography to identify aberrant cortical folding in disease.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
« Describe how cortical surfaces are rendered; and
« Use of cortical cartography for evaluation of development and disease states.
