ABSTRACT This paper presents a new method for projecting a mesh model of a source object onto a surface of an arbitrary target object.
A deformable model, called Self-organizing Deformable Model(SDM), is deformed so that the shape of the model is fitted to
the target object. We introduce an idea of combining a competitive learning and an energy minimization into the SDM deformation.
Our method is a powerful tool in the areas of computer vision and computer graphics. For example, it enables to map mesh models
onto various kinds of target surfaces like other methods for a surface parameterization, which have focused on specified target
surface. Also the SDM can reconstruct shapes of target objects like general deformable models.

    ABSTRACT: An ideal human brain atlas must provide the universal coordinates of standard healthy brain. Morphology of human brain contains considerable inter-individual variety; however, the classical human brain atlases have been made from a limited number of materials. A large organ such as human brain is subject to mechanical deformation and the production of stereotactic human brain atlases is still time-consuming and needs special instruments, environments and skills. To achieve both the spatial consistency and high histological quality for stereotactic human brain atlases, we have established a novel technique for constructing the stereotactic brain atlas using a formalin-fixed cadaver brain of the Japanese, blade-oscillation microslicing and digital imaging techniques. Our method enabled the accurate reconstruction of human brain histological slices with the three-dimensional consistency necessary for the stereotactic atlases of human brain, as well as the successful preservation of original macroscopic shape and cytoarchitecture.

    ABSTRACT: In 3D computer graphics, mesh parameterization is a key technique for digital geometry processings(DGP) such as morphing, shape blending, texture transfer, re-meshing and so on. This paper proposes a novel approach for parameterizing a mesh into another one directly. The main idea of our method is to combine a competitive learning and a leastsquare mesh techniques. It is enough to give some semantic feature correspondences between target meshes, even if they are in different shapes or in different poses. We show the effectiveness of our approach by giving some examples of its applications.
