One Rule to Grow Them All: A General Theory of Neuronal Branching and Its Practical Application
(A), (B) and (C) show sample synthetically generated model cells of layer 2/3, layer 4 and layer 5 cortical pyramidal cells respectively, all grown using the general strategy described in Figure 5. In A and B, all dendrites were thickened by 1 µm over all cells for clarity purposes. (D) When data from developing neurons was binned into three groups (P0–5, P8–12, P36–44), synthetically generated cortical pyramidal cells could be generated for the different developmental stages. Vertical or horizontal locations of the cells are purely for layout purposes in all cases.
