Coordinate files for downloading
The data are available as 'population files' (.pa), which are generated by programs MicroTrace (Leergaard and Bjaalie, 1995, Neurosci. Res. 22:231-243) and Micro3D (see www.nesys.uio.no).
The listed X,Y,Z coordinates refer to the internal coordinate system for the pontine nuclei. In the coordinate files, the origin is set to be in the center of the bounding box, as shown in the figure below. Concerning relative coordinates and derived presentation diagrams, see Pontine coordinate system and Standard diagrams.
For each experiment two .xyz and .pa files are available, one for each side (designated with L: left side and R: right side)
The pa-format is
defined as follows:
[sectionID] [#_points] [z-value] [object_type (point/line)]
1 unit = 10 micrometer
