TREES

download the current TREES toolbox for more recent Matlab versions:
Note: TREES 2.0 is coming soon; this is an interim version that is not entirely backward compatible, and does not yet contain the new features of TREES 2.0. However, recent Matlab versions are incompatible with version 1.15 and require the changes made in this package

requirements Tested most thoroughly on the more recent Matlab versions (Matlab 2018a, 2017b, 2015b for v.1.15 and 2010a for first version) under Windows, Mac and Linux. Some functions for the reconstruction of neuronal trees from image stacks require the "image processing toolbox" of Matlab.
For semi-automated reconstruction we recommend following minimal hardware:
-    a lot of RAM, e.g. 8 Gbytes
-    64 bit
-    a mouse wheel
The original version of TREES toolbox was developed on a DELL precision T5400 with 8 cores (2 x Xeon X5450 3 Ghz 4 cores), 8 Gbytes of RAM and a NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600 graphic card, running 64-bit Microsoft Windows 7.

getting started Simply download TREES.zip (v1.15), unzip it in your favourite directory and open Matlab. Enter the TREES directory and type in:

>> start_trees
