__Branch_Order__

This function returns the order of the
branch with respect to soma.

Function Output Type : Integer

Calculated : At each tracing point

Returns a value : For each compartment

Output:

Metric | Total_Sum | #Compartments (considered) |
#Compartments (discarded) |
Minimum | Average | Maximum | S.D. |

Branch_Order | 9901 | 1102 | (0) | 0 | 8.98457 | 23 | 6.13153 |

Values to consider : All

Output Interpretation :

This function returns the order of the branch with respect to soma where soma has order = 0. The first bifurcation makes Branch_Order =1, second bifurcation makes it 2 and so on.

Minimum = 0 gives minimum, Maximum = 23 gives maximum for given input neuron.
