pyramidal: Pyramidal Neurons in Cingulate Cortex

Description Usage Format Source References Examples

Description

Point patterns giving the locations of pyramidal neurons in micrographs from area 24, layer 2 of the cingulate cortex in the human brain. There is one point pattern from each of 31 human subjects. The subjects are divided into three groups: controls (12 subjects), schizoaffective (9 subjects) and schizophrenic (10 subjects).

Each point pattern is recorded in a unit square region; the unit of measurement is unknown.

These data were introduced and analysed by Diggle, Lange and Benes (1991).

Format

pyramidal is a hyperframe with 31 rows, one row for each subject. It has a column named Neurons containing the point patterns of neuron locations, and a column named group which is a factor with levels "control", "schizoaffective", "schizophrenic" identifying the grouping of subjects.
