Topological maps of receptor sheets are well known from early sensory processing stages. But two-dimensional topological maps have turned up in many other places. This talk summarizes recent advances in cortical mapping in the adult and developing brain using surface-based functional, structural, and diffusion-based imaging methods originally introduced by my laboratory more than two decades ago — including a peek at the first complete surface reconstruction of the exceptionally intricately folded cortex of the human cerebellum.
