Dynamic Programming Generation of Curves on Brain Surfaces
November 1998 (vol. 20 no. 11)
pp. 1260-1265

Abstract—Dynamic programming algorithms are presented for automated generation of length minimizing geodesics and curves of extremal curvature on the neocortex of the macaque and the Visible Human. Probabilistic models of curve variation are constructed in terms of the variability in speed, curvature, and torsion in the Frenet representation.
