Figure 2

Piece construction in Mindboggle. Shown on the left, from top to bottom, are the five steps Mindboggle takes to construct pieces from a subject brain image. Darker pixels (non-white matter) of a (1) segmented horizontal slice are (2) thinned to a skeleton which is (3) split into left and right hemispheres. (4) Contiguous pixels of the skeleton slice are grouped into 2-D pieces, and (5) these 2-D pieces are used to construct 3-D pieces, shown in cross-section (bottom) and in 3-D (right figure, showing the left side of the brain with the frontal pole facing left).
