Identification of individual subjects on the basis of their brain anatomical features

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5884835
PMID: 29618790
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23696-6

[…] nclude that human brain structures are unique to individuals and can be used for subject identification. Wachinger have used a new transformation for analyzing the shape of the brain, which is called ShapeDNA. By using this ShapeDNA they are in the position to calculate eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the Laplace Beltrami operator using a higher-order finite elements method (FEM with Dirichlet o […]


Multidimensional heritability analysis of neuroanatomical shape

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5116071
PMID: 27845344
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms13291

[…] he 2D Laplace–Beltrami operator on each of these representations, yielding the LBS-based shape descriptor. A python implementation of this pipeline is freely available ( […]


Machine Learning Approaches: From Theory to Application in Schizophrenia

PMCID: 3893837
PMID: 24489603
DOI: 10.1155/2013/867924

[…] nomial (degree = 3), and radial basis function, and the learning by example approach was introduced by adopting leave-one-out cross-validation procedure. Finally, the descriptor was compared with the ShapeDNA descriptor [], which, however, does not deal with multiple scales and takes into account only global information. Both the GHKS and the ShapeDNA descriptor produced the best results when the […]
