Method for neuron tracing
Hi,

I was wondering which method is used to trace a neurite between two markers. More precisely, when trace a neurite between two markers using 'Label as starting pos for tracing/measuring' and 'trace from the start pos ...', what does Vaa3D do? I would like to better understand the method behinds. Would you have a reference to one or several papers?

Thanks,

Sarah

RE: Method for neuron tracing
Use the GD method.

see this paper for detail
