We recently described a pipeline for reverse engineering anatomically realistic cortical networks, e.g. representing a cortical column in rat vibrissal cortex. It is important to acquire quantitative data about the structural properties of such reconstructed networks, both for validation of the modeling approach and for investigating biological research questions. Here, we review this reconstruction pipeline and describe current work on a tool for the visual and quantitative analysis of such networks. This tool allows for interactive exploration of the 3D network and provides a query-based interface to quickly obtain quantitative data about selected properties of interest.
