Analysis of Neuronal Arbors

“Comparative topological analysis of neuronal arbors via sequence representation and alignment”
By Todd Gillette, PhD | June 2015

This dissertation is focused on applying bioinformatic approaches to neuronal morphology to enable new discoveries and increase understanding about how morphology and neuron function interrelate.

Name-calling in the hippocampus

The core article for David Hamilton's dissertation is focused on the article in this post.

In order to alleviate this nomenclature confusion regarding hippocampal neuron types and properties, we introduce a new functionality of Hippocampome.org: a fully searchable, curated catalog of human and machine-readable definitions, each linked to the corresponding neuron and property terms.

Furthermore, we extend our robust approach to providing each neuron type with an informative name and unique identifier by mapping all encountered synonyms and homonyms.
