Thin Plate Splines and the Analysis of Biological Shapes

Fred L. Bookstein and William Jaynes
University of Michigan Medical Center (1990)
20:58 minutes

This video describes the use of splines on "landmarks" in images of brains to make it possible to make comparisons between brains of a variety of shapes and sizes.

This video is very polished and would be excellent both for the classroom and for 'statistics day' presentations.
