Examples of portions of the axonal tree that are within one and two length constants of the cell body

Figure 13. Illustration of the portions of the axonal arbor that are within one (red), two (green) and greater than two (blue) length constants of the soma.  The number of synapses contained within the red portion is expected to be approximately 200 while that in the green portion is approximately 1500-2000.
