This chapter analyzes an algorithm for repairing computer-based neuronal reconstructions. It deals with a new probability density cloud approach for characterizing and repairing neuron dendritic and axonal morphologies. The chapter uses a layer 2 pyramidal cell to validate the dendritic repair process. In the repair algorithm, it assumes that the dendrites of neurons have a statistical symmetry in their morphologies, although they do not necessarily seem geometrically symmetric. The chapter also shows that the algorithm depends on the quality as well as the quantity of the population of cells.

Keywords:   repair algorithm, neuronal reconstructions, probability density cloud, neuron dendritic morphology, neuron axonal morphology, dendrites
