Measures for quantifying dendritic arborizations

Network. 2002 Aug;13(3):397-414.


Topological and metrical measures are reviewed, which describe whole dendritic trees and variables within trees. These measures are applied to differentiate and classify groups of neurons. They are also of importance for simulation or reconstruction of neuronal trees in view of functional computational characteristics.
