Forest of synthetic pyramidal dendrites grown using Cajal's laws of neuronal branching.

Synthetic dendrites of cortical pyramidal cells are indistinguishable from their real counterparts when constructed on the basis of the assumption that their morphology minimizes conduction times within the cell and the total amount of cytoplasm (see Cuntz et al., 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1000877).
