Morphological aspects of dendritic branching such branch lengths, taper rates,ratios of daughter radii, and bifurcation probabilities are measured from real cells. These morphometrics are then resampled to create virtual trees based on the current branch order, radius, path distance to the soma, or combination of the three.
