This study proposes a set of shape descriptors of a neuron image to match the 3D neurons in FlyCircuit called DescNeuro. A set of four descriptors is identified from the best combination of 23 potential shape based descriptors. Each 3D neuron is represented by a number of projected images from multiple viewpoints evenly distributed on a spherical surface. The shape-matching method is helpful for detecting putatively duplicated neurons if multiple pairs of projected images with high similarity and close location exist.
