Based on modeling gyrification as a reaction-diffusion process, the authors provide a mechanism — compatible with the sulcal roots hypothesis — by which the folding process of the cerebral cortex can be explained, along with its anatomical variability and common malformations like polymicrogyria and lissencephaly.
