Step 2. Create subsets
While subsets can be helpful in the management of stylized models,
they are absolutely essential for dealing with anatomically detailed models.
The CellBuilder gives us an "all" subset automatically.
What other subsets do we need?
Let's look back at the table of desired biophysical properties,
and think about our biophysics strategy for a moment.
And that's it.
We only need to set up an "apicals" subset and an "axon" subset.
- We'll need an "apicals" subset.
- For the sake of clarity we will also want to have an "axon" subset,
because the anatomical axon ended up with the name "dendrite_5"
when it was imported into the CellBuilder.
Making a subset called "axon" that contains dendrite_5
will allow us to use an anatomically meaningful name
when we need to refer to the axon.
"Creating these subsets is left as an exercise for the reader."
Here's what the Subsets page looks like to start. Have at it.
1. Select Subtree.
2. If necessary use "shift click" or "click and drag" to select several sections, one at a time.
3. It may be helpful to zoom in.
We're ready to deal with the spatial grid.
