Visualise neurons and neuronal circuits with large numbers of cells using NeuroTessMesh on your desktop. It enables the visualisation of the 3D morphology of cells included in open databases, such as NeuroMorpho, and provides the tools needed to approximate missing information such as the soma’s morphology.
NeuroTessMesh takes morphological tracings of cells acquired by neuroscientists and generates 3D models that approximate the neuronal membrane. The resolution of the models can be adapted at the time of visualization. Assign colours to codify different parts of a morphology, differentiating relevant morphological variables, or even neuronal activity.
