Hippocampal Axonal Morphology
Two major types of algorithms have been proposed for the generation and description of dendritic trees. Local algorithms rely entirely on a set of local rules correlating morphological parameters (such as branch diameter and length) to let each branch grow independent of the other dendrites in the tree and independent of its absolute position within the tree. In global algorithms, new dendritic branches are dealt from outside to competing groups of growing tips, also depending on their position in the tree (e.g. on their distance from the soma). They are developing two programs, L-Neuron and ArborVitae, which implement several global and local algorithms, to investigate systematically the potential of the computational neuroanatomy approach for neuroscience databases.
Experimental files of motoneuron morphology were provided by Dr. Burke's lab at the NIH. The relative data is described and published by Cullheim's et al., 1987 (PMID: 3819010)
Experimental files of Purkinje cell morphology were provided by Dr. Rapp at the Hebrew University. The relative data is described and published by Rapp et al., 1994 (PMID: 8014888).
