We perform a curvature-based analysis on a group of normal and a group of polymicrogyria brain surfaces. Our analysis is lobar based, and we consider the distribution of several intrinsic and extrinsic curvature functions. We show that PMG, even if presented locally, has general affects on the other brain regions.
