Loads the mesh data from an Amira 3D manipulation program. Amira is usually used to create morphological reconstructions of neurons.

It uses Amira's mesh file format that looks like this:

---------------------------
# AmiraMesh 3D ASCII 2.0

nVertices 4651
nEdges 9302
define Origins 125
define vertexTypeList 0

Parameters { ... }

Vertices { float[3] Coordinates } @1
Vertices { int NeighbourCount } @2
Vertices { float Radii } @3
EdgeData { int NeighbourList } @4
Origins { int Origins } @5
Vertices { int vertexTypeCounter } @6
vertexTypeList { int vertexTypeList } @7

# Data section follows
@1
46.2348 45.2406 7.08964
...

@2
...
---------------------------

In Matlab, you can use it like this:

>> obj = loadAmiraMesh('test.am')

obj =

nVertices: 4651
nEdges: 9302
nOrigins: 125
vertices: [4651x3 double]
neighborCount: [4651x1 double]
radii: [4651x1 double]
neighborList: [9302x1 double]
Origins: [125x1 double]
