Strahler ordering scheme. (A) Schematic drawing of a dendritic tree with full-named branches. Computation of counters corresponding to the Strahler ordering for each branch. (B) Strahler Ordering Scheme for a reconstructed cell. A pyramidal CA1 cell from the Gulyás repository (Group 4, pc4c) was used to validate an effective Strahler indexing. The plot shows each branch with a different color (black, red, green and blue) corresponding to Strahler indexes (1, 2, 3 and 4) respectively. Notice the high number of terminal branches at the proximal and distal apical dendritic tree.
