This paper presents a general statistical framework for modeling deformable object. This model is devoted being used in digital brain atlases. We first present a numerical modeling of brain sulci. We present also a method to characterize the high inter-individual variability of basic cortical structures on which the description of the cerebral cortex is based. The aimed applications use numerical modeling of brain sulci to assist non-linear registration of human brains by inter-individual anatomical matching or to better compare neuro-functional recordings performed on a series of individuals. The utilization of these methods is illustrated using a few examples.
