Computer Assisted Assembly of Connectomes from Electron Micrographs: Application to Caenorhabditis elegans

Figure 3

Error in determining connection strength.

Average and distribution of edge weights (total amount of synaptic interaction) determined by three separate individuals for the 55 edges connecting the male-specific interneuron PVX to its 55 synaptic partners in the C. elegans male posterior connectome [9]. Edge weights are represented by the number of 70–90 nm serial sections of pre-synaptic densities. The weights are for a single edge except where indicated. Values of edge weights (abscissa) are the weights assigned by one of the three scorers, arbitrarily chosen. Weight values typically differed by 1 to 2 sections.
