Surfin’ endocasts: The good and the bad on brain form

Emiliano Bruner and Naomichi Ogihara

Plain Language Abstract

Computed methods have deeply improved morphometrics. Nonetheless, these techniques require a specific expertise and are based on complex numerical transformations. Appealing graphic outputs or numerical results can easily introduce biased information, if the limitations of these tools are not taken into account. Methods based on rough geometry instead of actual anatomical elements are particularly sensitive to these kinds of drawbacks. Numerical and spatial models in morphometrics refer to specific geometrical or physical properties of the organisms and not to the organisms themselves.
