List of applications

L-Measure - Extract morphological measurements

This tool allows researchers to extract quantitative morphological measurements from neuronal reconstructions.

Neuronal reconstructions are typically obtained from brightfield or fluorescence microscopy preparations using applications such as Neurolucida, Eutectic, or Neuron_Morpho, or can be synthesized via computational simulations.

NeuroViewer - 3D Neuron reconstruction

3D Neuron reconstruction visualization package

NeuroSTR was originally created by Luis Rodriguez-Lujan.

NeuroSTR - Validator, format converter

NeuroSTR is a neuroanatomy toolbox for C++. It reads and processes three-dimensional neuron reconstructions in the most common file formats and offers a huge set of functions and utilities to work with them.

NeuroSTR was originally created by Luis Rodriguez-Lujan and is currently maintained by Bojan Mihaljevic.

3DBasalRM - Repair cut-points in the basal arborization

Data-driven repairing model that detects cut-points in the basal arborization and then repairs them using a growth model built from complete three-dimensional neuron reconstructions.
As result a neuron in JSON format is returned

3DBasalRM was originally created by Sergio Luengo.

GabaClassifier - Interneuron classifier

Classifies the given interneuron morphology into one of the 7 possible classes.

The model has been trained with layer L2/3 to layer L6 interneurons and thus only interneurons from those layers are allowed as input.

GabaClassifier was originally created by Bojan Mihaljevic

Statistics engine

Discrete and continuous data are supported.

Descriptive statistics:univariate, bivariate and multivariate analysis and visualization.
Inferential statistics: confidence intervals, hypothesis testing (one sample t-test, two dependent and independent samples t-test), find fittest distribution.

Interactive plots with Plotly (histograms, probability density functions, box plots, 2D and 3D scatter plots, Chernoff faces, Radar charts, Parallel coordinates, Andrew curves and much more!), custom options, exporting formats, etc.
Everything online.

This mathematical approach could provide a useful tool for theoretical predictions on the functional features of human pyramidal neurons based on the morphology of dendritic spines.
This tool was trained with human cortical pyramidal neurons.

3DspineS was originally created by Sergio Luengo.

The definition of the soma is fuzzy, as there is no clear line demarcating the soma of the labeled neurons and the origin of the dendrites and axon. Thus, the morphometric analysis of the neuronal soma is highly subjective.

This software provides a mathematical definition and an automatic segmentation method to delimit the neuronal soma. We applied this method to the characterization of pyramidal cells, which are the most abundant neurons in the cerebral cortex. Thus, this software is a means of characterizing pyramidal neurons in order to objectively compare the morphometry of the somata of these neurons in different cortical areas and species.

3DSomaMS was originally created by Sergio Luengo and Luis Rodriguez-Lujan (GUI).

3DSynapsesSA is a tool designed to process and analyze patterns in the three-dimensional spatial distribution of cortical synapses. It brings a variety of both innovative and well-known techniques from the spatial statistics field.

This tool allows you to:
Process and visualize data from cortical synapses for error checking
Model the spatial distribution of the synapses
Replicate, via simulation, samples of cortical synapses
Compare several indicators obtained from data of different layers

3DSynapsesSA was originally created by Laura Antón-Sánchez and Luis Rodriguez-Lujan (GUI).

Generation of synthetic neurons with soma and dendrites.

Dendrite arborization simulation was originally created by Pablo Fernández González
