This function returns the number of branches in the given input neuron. A branch is one or more compartments that lie between two branching points or between one branching point and a termination point.
Function Output Type : Boolean
Calculated : At each tracing point
Returns a value : For each branch
Values to consider : Total_sum
Output Interpretation :
In the above example returns total 9 such branches. Since its a boolean function the user should use Total_Sum value for this metric. The minimum,
average and maximum values doesn't make much sense for the study of this
Examples of Distribution Plots :
-One can use this boolean rule 'terminal_degree>1' in the specificity panel to limit the analysis to internal branches. The opposite rule, which is 'terminal_degree=1' limits the analysis to terminal branches.
