Library for manipulating neuromorpho resources.

Project description


Codecov PyPI) GitHub Workflow Status


pip3 install neuromorpholib



A simple download of known dataset and name

from neuromorpholib import neuromorpho

nmo = neuromorpho.NeuroMorpho()
acc1 = nmo.download_swc("martone", "ACC1")

A query for all species=mouse neurons

mouse_neurons ={"species": "mouse"})

Download a SWC for a mouse neuron

swc_demo = nmo.download_swc(

If you know the archive name and neuron name, you can also download the swc directly by passing archive and neuron_name arguments.

If you only want the SWC text and don't want it to be converted into a NeuronMorphology object, you can pass text_only=True.

SWC Management

Read a SWC file from disk

from neuromorpholib.swc import load_swc, NeuronMorphology

my_morphology = load_swc("my_neuron.swc")
# This is a NeuronMorphology object.

Get a list of branch points

branch_points = my_morphology.get_branch_points()

Get a simplified graph (only leaves and branch points) of a morphology

morphology_graph = my_morphology.smoothed()
# nx.DiGraph

SWC Geometry Operations

Rotate, translate, or scale a geometry with NeuronMorphology functions:

n = NeuronMorphology()
n.translate([4, 44, 10])
n.rotate([0, 0, math.pi/2])
