Reduce a hippocampus network model using Amsalem et al 2020

This notebook is intended for applying a neuron reduction algorithm by Oren Amsalem [1][2] to a neuronal circuit in SONATA [3] format.


A complex neuron morphology is reduced to a simple one as described on the image below. We have the leftmost original morphology that becomes the rightmost reduced morphology. We apply this algorithm to all neurons with morphologies in a given neuronal circuit.
