__N_tips__

This function returns the number of
terminal tips for the given input neuron. This function counts the
number of compartments that terminate as terminal endpoints.

Function Output Type : Boolean

Calculated : At each tracing point

Returns a value : For whole arbor

Output:

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

N_branch | 6 | 6 | (9) | 1 | 1 | 1 | 0 |

Values to consider : Total_sum

Output Interpretation :

In the above example returns total 6 terminal tips. 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 function.
