Figure 1 (A and B): (A and B) Pathway for creating a flat earth map and the layout of the anatomy. (A) The reconstruction pathway according to Simpson et al.[5] is plotted in a curved pathway along the outer centimeter of the brain at the level of the 3rd ventricle on a coronal planning slice. (B) The resultant Mercator/flat earth map demonstrates the entire brain surface laid flat with the temporal lobes seen laterally (T) and separated from the frontal lobes by the Sylvian fissures (straight arrows), the parasagittal regions seen at the top of the image along each side of the midline (curved arrows), and the peri-Rolandic regions seen at the bottom of the image, on each side of the midline (dotted oval)
