Similarity Score Queries Guide
The similarity scores are calculated using NBLAST or other third-party scores (e.g. NeuronBridge). Only queries with above-threshold scores will appear in the ‘Find similar…’ menu.
Step 1: Select a Neuron or Expression Pattern
Navigate to the VFB browser and select a neuron or expression pattern of interest so it’s information is shown in the Term Info panel
Step 2: Open the ‘Find similar…’ Menu under the ‘Query For’ section
Under the ‘Query For’ section, locate the ‘Find similar…’ expandable menu. This menu will only appear if an above-threshold score is available for the selected neuron or expression pattern.
Step 3: Run a Similarity Score Query
Inside the ‘Find similar…’ menu, you will find queries to find morphologically similar neurons or expression patterns. Select a query to run it. The results will display neurons or expression patterns that are similar to your selected neuron or expression pattern.
Note: We recalculate these scores shortly after new data is added, so new matches may appear if you check back a few months later.
