A thin-plate spline method for spatial warping was used to register multiple image sets during 3D reconstruction of histological sections. In a neuroanatomical study, the same labeling method was applied to several turtle brains. Each case produced a set of microscopic sections. Spatial warping was employed to map data sets from multiple cases onto a template coordinate system. This technique enabled us to produce an anatomical reconstruction of a neural network that controls limb movement.
