This function returns the total number of compartments that constitute a branch between two bifurcation points or between a bifurcation point and a terminal tip.

Function Output Type : Real

Calculated : At each bifurcation point

Returns a value : For each branch

Command Line Usage Function : "-f24, 0, 0, 10.0"

Metric Total_Sum #Compartments
Minimum Average Maximum S.D.
FRAGMENTATION 1082 182 (920) 1 5.94505 16 4.28069
*All units are ratios

Values to consider : All

Output Interpretation :

The Total_Sum of the Fragmentation doesn't make sense. Only the compartments consisting of a branch are considered,

Total_Sum = 1082 gives Total_Sum, Minimum = 1 gives minimum, Maximum = 16 gives maximum for given input neuron.
