ShuTu: Mouse Purkinje cell confocal images 63X

<p>Here we provide images of the mouse Purkinje cell (63X) for practicing reconstruction using the ShuTu software platform. The cell was imaged by David Hunt in the Spruston Lab. </p><p>ShuTu (Chinese for "dendrite") is a software platform for semi-automated reconstruction of neuronal morphology. It is designed for neurons stained following patch-clamp recording and biocytin filling/staining. With an additional preprocessing step, it can also handle fluorescence images from confocal stacks.</p> <p>Even when there is only a single neuron in the imaged volume, automated reconstruction is tricky, because of background. Thus, ShuTu was developed to facilitate a two-step process: automated reconstruction, followed by manual correction. The software uses sophisticated algorithms to perform the automated reconstruction, as well as a convenient user interface to facilitate efficient completion of the reconstruction via manual annotation.</p> <p><br></p> <p><br></p>
