Alain Goriely (Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, England). The mechanics of brain and skull morphogenesis.

Séminaire général
Date: jeudi 28 juin 2018 11:30

Lieu: 4 place Jussieu, tour 55-65 4ème étage, salle 401B "Paul Germain"

The human brain is an organ of extreme complexity, the object of ultimate intellectual egocentrism, and a source of endless scientific challenges. Its intricate folded shape has fascinated generations of scientists and has, so far, defied a complete description. How does it emerge? How is its shape related to its function? In this talk, I will review our current understanding of brain morphogenesis and its unique place within a general mathematical theory of biological growth. In particular, I will present simple models for basic pattern formation and show how they help us understand  brain folding and skull formation.
