warping
 n.— «The atlas would give researchers and physicians around the world access to virtual maps of how the brain functions, to compare with data they obtain from scans of their subjects or patients. By the end of next year, they should be able to project local scans free of charge into the online atlas via a computer technique called “warping.” That will immediately show if some part of the brain appears to be working abnormally, compared with norms established by the scans of the 7,000 “healthy” brains.» —“Getting Inside Your Head” by Terry McCarthy in Los Angeles Time Oct. 16, 2005.
