Extended Data Figure 7 : Conclusions from fluorescence-based single-neuron tracing data hold true when the analysis is restricted to subset of target areas.

Extended Data Figure 7

a, The projection patterns of reconstructed GFP-filled neurons when only the six target areas (LI, LM, AL, PM, AM and RL) are considered. Projection strengths are normalized to the maximum projection of each neuron, and only neurons projecting to at least one target area are shown. b, The distribution of target area numbers per projection neuron. c, The fraction of all cells projecting to each target area. d, The fraction of dedicated input per area. e, The number of times each binarized projection motif is observed. f, The fraction of broadcasting cells as a function of the minimum projection strength (relative to the primary target) that each area needs to receive to be considered a target. g, The fraction of broadcasting cells as a function of increasing buffer zones between areas within which axons are ignored, assuming a minimum projection of 1 mm of axon per target area. h, The fraction of broadcasting cells as a function of the minimal amount of axon per area for it to be considered a target, assuming buffer zones of 100-μm width. Black arrowheads indicate chosen buffer zones and minimal projection for analysis in the paper.
