if I want to add a spine with a neck of (for simplicity) 0.5 µm diameter and 2 µm length and a head of 1 µm diameter and length, I would naively use the following commands:
Code: Select all
create spine pt3dclear() pt3dadd(0,0,0,0.5) pt3dadd(2,0,0,0.5) pt3dadd(2,0,0,1) pt3dadd(3,0,0,1)
I guess this is some problem of Neuron wanting to treat all information as frusta, but the problem is that I need to have the spine in NEURON having exactly the same surface area as calculated in Matlab, so any idea how I could do this correctly?
Thank you very much.
