We ALWAYS redraw the medial wall and calcarine sulcus borders.
Sometimes, we redraw other flattening cuts (e.g., frontal, cingulate,
sylvian, or temporal) if we might use the flat map to draw borders
around surface-based regions of interest in that area. For most
purposes, though, redrawing the calcarine and medial wall borders suffices.
after flattening i get a "compressed medial wall" surface with an
orange border....(along with blue borders)....
how well does this orange border demark the medial wall? is it
necessary to make corrections?
Correct: It curves quite a bit along the sagittal plane all along the
ventral segment, but especially from the amygdala to the olfactory
sulcus. The dorsal segment is more stable along the x axis.
from the caret 5 core6 landmark web page, i saw that the ventral
extent of the medial wall is more lateral than the dorsal extent.
so the medial wall does not lie on a single medial plane, right?
None of this is cause for concern. Just draw on the compressed medial
wall, but use an inflated view in Window 2 to orient yourself. After
drawing, project the border, so you can see how it looks on the inflated
Just curious: Are you still working with monkeys, or is this a human
