Software, Datasets, Methods Papers, & More
Ephus, WaveSurfer, & ScanImage – We have been involved in helping to develop and support these highly flexible software packages for general-purpose data acquisition, electrophysiology, and laser scanning microscopy, developed and maintained in Karel Svoboda’s laboratory and Vidrio Technologies.
Length density analysis routines – A package of tools for analyzing digitally reconstructed neuronal morphology in terms of axonal and dendritic length density. The source code can be downloaded via this link (via eLife).
A dataset of digitally reconstructed dendritic arbors of mouse corticospinal neurons, by Ben Suter, has been deposited with NeuroMorpho.
Laminar connectivity matrix datasets are available at SenseLab – a web site supporting multiple databases for computational modeling and related neuroinformatics tools, maintained by the lab of Gordon M. Shepherd, professor of neuroscience at Yale (neuroscientists sometimes confuse us).
