The Morphoelectrotonic Transform is described in (see abstract):
Zador, A., Agmon-Snir, H., and Segev, I. 1995. The morphoelectrotonic transform: a graphical approach to dendritic function. J. Neuroscience 15: 1669-1682.
The sample cells were first published in:
Douglas, R., Martin, K., and Whitteridge, D. 1991. An intracellular analysis of the visual responses of neurones in cat visual cortex. J. Physiol. (Lond) 440: 659-696.
We thank Rodney Douglas for making his reconstructed neurons available.
