Wondering if there is any way to identify whether a branch is dendrite or axon in .swc files that have 3d reconstruction data?
We’ve noticed that there seems to be an ID ranging between 1 and 3; but what these numbers mean is rather unclear.
Hello Eric, in SWC format the second column identifies structure or compartment of the cell as such;
1 - soma
2 - axon
3 - basal dendrite
4 - apical dendrite
Hope this helps,
this does help! I appreciate the input!
my apologies for the delay in responding!
