The cortical fold is one of the most striking feature of the brain and it plays a tremendously important role in understanding brain function. In this paper we build a precise mathematical representation of a typical cortical surface. This representation will allow us to make statements about the geometry of the surface and will enable us to compute intrinsic geometrical properties such as the Mean and the Gaussian curvature of the surface.
