In this paper, a systematic method based on self-organizing maps is presented to classify interneurons of silkworm moths. Denseness of branching structures and existence of thick main dendrites are quantified by six fractal dimension values and three values calculated from images to which fundamental processing techniques are applied, respectively. Such values are employed as nine elements in training data for a map. The classification result is obtained as clusters with units in the trained map. Experimental results establish that the classification executed by the proposed method is comparable in accuracy to the manually executed classification
