Cell types and Brain regions were assigned with a heuristic process based on available metadata. This dataset was processed with a streamlined automated variant of the standardization procedure, additional details of which are published here. Digital reconstruction used a custom method after image segmentation by Amira. The SWC units for the neurons in this dataset are not expressed in micrometers. The exact scaling factors, which are different for each neuron, are not known, but our approximate estimate is 0.32 in XY and 0.26 in Z. Thus, the morphometric measurements can be compared within other neurons of this archive, but not across the rest of the database.When originally released, this reconstruction had been incompletely processed, and this issue was fixed in release 7.0 (Sep 2015). The original files are still available for download here. For any question or clarification, please contact us.
