NeuroM

Blue Brain NeuroM is a Python toolkit for the analysis and processing of neuron morphologies. Neuron morphologies are tightly coupled to neuron electrical properties and therefore are a crucial part of understanding the neuron as a functional unit. The NeuroM software has been designed to enable researchers to quickly pinpoint the characteristics and specificities of every neuron. It is composed of a low-level API for reading morphology files on top of which are built several applications: a morphology file validator, a feature extractor and a morphology viewer. This software is also part of the Human Brain Project Brain Simulation Platform.
