Brain segmentation/Related Articles
Brain segmentation: In brain morphometry, the decomposition of an image of the brain into different classes of tissue, e.g. white matter, grey matter or cerebrospinal fluid.
This article contains just a definition and optionally other subpages (such as a list of related articles), but no metadata. if you want to expand this into a full article.
- Brain : The core unit of a central nervous system.
- Morphometry : The quantitative study of shapes.
- Brain morphometry : The quantitative study of structures in the brain, their differences between individuals, correlations with brain function, and changes of these characteristics over time.
- Image segmentation : The (usually algorithmic) decomposition of an image on the basis of some of its properties, e.g. edges or intensity gradients.
- Grey matter : A subset of brain tissue that contains few myelinated axons but the somas of nerve cells, as well as glia and endothelial structures.
- White matter : A subset of brain tissue whose volume is dominated by myelinated axons of nerve cells.
- Cerebrospinal fluid : The liquid in which the central nervous system is embedded.
- Pia mater : The innermost of the meninges; surrounds the entire brain and spinal cord, descends into sulci.
- Blood vessel : Any of the tubular vessels conveying the blood (arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules, and veins).
