About this Research Topic
Although there are lots of studies in the literature that focused on image and geometry analysis for brain informatics, there are still many challenges in this field to be taken on. For example, how to automatically obtain the morphological representations of neuronal structures from whole brain images and how to correct the geometrical errors in the automated reconstruction results are still open problems. This Research Topic aims to gather the latest research addressing different challenges of image and geometry analysis for brain informatics, including neuron reconstruction, image segmentation, fiber tracking, geometry measures and so on. We welcome high-quality submissions of article types of original research.
Contributions to this Research Topic may address (but are not limited to) the following aspects of image and geometry analysis for brain informatics:
- Image segmentation for brain imaging data
- Neuron reconstruction and fiber tracking
- Geometry measures design and geometry analysis for reconstruction results
- Efficient representations of neuron morphology
- Classification and retrieval of neuronal data using geometry-based approaches
- Image registration, super-resolution and resampling for brain imaging data
- Brain imaging data transformation/synthesis
