  • Abstract : Folding patterns of every human brain are unique with no consensus among neurobiologists regarding the mechanism for folding pattern formation. We present a Turing reaction-diffusion model that uses an activator and inhibitor, and incorporates parameters that influence genetic control, brain growth, and domain scale. Our results study static and dynamic domain growth, and we investigate domain shape to compare results to brain diseases with excessive folding or lack of folding such as polymicrogyria and lissencephaly.
