Figure 7

Theoretical and observed K-functions and simulation envelopes for a set of 9 example dendrites. This figure shows the K-function for the same 9 (of 485) example dendrites used for the QQ-plots of Figure 5. We randomly selected 1 dendrite from each DIV and each biological replicate (experiment) to ensure the diversity of the set. Each graph shows the observed K ̂ (t) function (black), the theoretical K(t) function (red) as well as the two-sided 5% and 95% point-wise simulation envelopes as a function of the radius t. We see here that the black curves do not leave the gray shaded area for any value of t, which means that the deviation from spatially random is insignificant at the 10% level for every t-value.
