__Volume__

This function returns the volume of the compartment.

Formula: PI x r 2 x h

Function Output Type : Real

Calculated : At each tracing point

Returns a value : For each compartment

Output:

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

Volume | 1692 | 1553 | (1) | 0 | 1.08951 | 74.5406 | 3.1555 |

Values to consider : All

Output Interpretation :

The volume is computed by calculating the area of circle using pi*r^2*h, where r is the radius and h is the height of compartment. The above example, shows the total volume is 1692 microns.

Total_Sum = 1692 gives Total_Sum, Minimum = 0 gives minimum, Maximum = 74.5406 gives maximum for given input neuron.

The compartments that form the soma are not considered for this study.
