To save the neuron with new morphology in a .hoc file

Managing anatomically complex model cells with the CellBuilder. Importing morphometric data with NEURON's Import3D tool or Robert Cannon's CVAPP. Where to find detailed morphometric data.

To save the neuron with new morphology in a .hoc file

Post by Jose Gomez »

Hi,
I loaded a neuron from a .hoc file and I have changed the its morphology, cutting randomly some dendrites with “delete_section()”. Now, I would like to save this new neuron in a hoc file. How can I do this?

Thank you very much in advanced
Jose

If the model's geometry was defined with pt3d specification, you can import it into a
CellBuilder, then save the CellBuilder to a session file. If geometry was defined using
the stylized (L, diam) specification, you're out of luck.
