Mosaics of neurons are usually quantified by methods based on nearest-neighbor distance (NND). The commonest indicator of regularity has been the ratio of the mean NND to the standard deviation, here termed the 'conformity ratio.' However, an accurate baseline value of this ratio for bounded random samples has never been determined; nor was its sampling distribution known, making it impossible to test its significance. Instead, significance was assessed from goodness-of-fit to a Rayleigh… CONTINUE READING
