Test that the base neuromorpho.org API url, http://neuromorpho.org/api, can be reached. The API provides access to the neuron information, morphometry data and literature via three main endpoints using conventional HTTP requests. These endpoints are used by function in this package to read neurons from the repository, get meta information associated with those neurons, and perform limited searches of the literature describing neuronal morphologies.

Arguments
