Hey there –
I’m interested in looking for correlations between soma size and input resistance. I’m familiar with working with the AllenSDK for the Cell Types data and how to get the pre-computed metrics for the electrophysiology of the cell. I’m less familiar with the morphology side of things.
Is there a computed soma size (e.g., diameter, surface area) in any of the SDK tools for the Cell Types data? I see by using
morphology = ctc.get_reconstruction(cell_id), in “
morphology.soma” there is “radius” but my understanding from the documentation is that this is the radius of the node (?)
I see on the API there is usefully a tag “
soma-surface” (which seems to be surface area in µm) but I was hoping to get it through the SDK if possible and thought I’d ask.
