N2 - This chapter lays out elementary principles of fractal geometry underpinning much of the rest of this book. It assumes minimal mathematical background, defines key principles and terms in context, and outlines the basics of a fractal analysis method known as box counting and how it is used to do fractal, lacunarity, and multifractal analyses. As a standalone reference, the chapter grounds the reader to be able to understand, evaluate, and apply essential methods to appreciate the exquisitely detailed fractal geometry of the brain.
