The reason this site was created

Brain Imaging Informatics is dedicated to design of automatic image analysis and visualization technologies for human brain cytoarchitecture. It means processing of brain images at microscopic resolution (1 micron or better). Recent progress in imaging technologies, including MRI and fMRI

The story of MCG: lost opportunity.

This story is a great example of how illiterate bureaucracy, for quite poorly specified reason, was capable to stop a pioneering research and delayed by 30 years the opportunity for the progress in an important area of science. 1. The

Segmentation using algorithms of Mathematical Morphology

The main part of presented algorithm is sequential homotopic thinning transformation, “invented” by a group of mathematicians, including F. Meyer (1976), Ch. Lantuejoul (1978), and headed by J.Serra, from Center for Mathematical Morphology, Fontainebleau, France. Many transformations based on thinning

“Rich-club” member candidates areas form a distinct group

Based on preliminary results of regression analysis, it seems possible to conclude that our initial hypothesis (here) was true: rich-club members areas differ from non-members by different topology of clusterization pattern. Cluster population regression data show that “rich-club” member candidates
