Automating the process of reconstruction of axonal and dendritic arbors from light microscopy stacks of images is essential for large-scale quantitative analysis of neural circuits. In this talk, I plan to discuss the motivation for automated circuit reconstruction, review the algorithms used for the same, discuss the metric for evaluating the performance of these algorithms, and present results obtained in our lab.
