  • Summary statistics of six scalar morphometric and topological parameters that show significant differences for at least one morphological subregion. The triplets in columns three and four represent minimum, median, and maximum values. P values were calculated using Mann–Whitney U test and a cutoff of 5% was used. Summary statistics for all 19 scalar measures and for all 4 subregions are provided in Extended data Table 1-1, Table 1-2, Table 1-3, and Table 1-4. Morphologies showed significant differences for a few scalar measures, with width, total dendritic volume, and maximum centrifugal order showing large changes.
