The neuronal connectivity dataset of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans attracts wide attention from computational neuroscientists and experimentalists. However, the dataset is incomplete. The ventral and dorsal nerve cords of a single nematode were reconstructed halfway along the body and the posterior data are missing, leaving 21 of 75 motoneurons of the locomotor network with partial or no connectivity data. Using a new framework for network analysis, the perimotor space, we identified… CONTINUE READING
