Abstract
In this survey a review of several investigators' work on computational graphics of neuronal shape and form is presented, and is followed by a proposal that the functional inferences of stereomorphology lead to a three-dimensional integration of brain structure and function. The concepts are, of course, also applicable to the spinal cord, and in some ways to peripheral nerve and muscle. Following a description of the parameters and techniques used to describe neuronal body, dendrite, and branching geometry, a brief account is given of the importance of biostereo-metrical techniques to further understanding of the asymmetry of the brain as a whole. Brief statements of a descriptive nature are provided to indicate studies on stereomorphology of the brain vasculature, and a new technique called cinemorphology which, combined with computed tomo-graphy, allows three-dimensional unfolding views of the whole brain or any structure within it. The latter views can be rotated for additional insight into the structures total relations within the brain.
