We present a novel approach to creating flat maps of the brain. It is impossible to flatten a curved surface in 3D space without metric and areal distortion; however, the Riemann Mapping Theorem implies that it is theoretically possible to preserve conformal (angular) information under flattening. Our approach attempts to preserve the conformal structure between the original cortical surface in 3-space and the flattened surface. We demonstrate this with data from the human cerebellum and wedoi:10.1007/10704282_31 fatcat:tngmkahqlnhbjbvan4vqbgfvpu
