Introduction to Stereology for Neuroscientists

There are still a few open spaces in Dr. Mark West’s “Introduction to Stereology for Neuroscientists” course on October 15-16, at the Silversmith Hotel in Chicago. Register for the two-day course, held immediately prior to this year’s meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, and learn how to design, supervise, and critically evaluate stereological studies of the nervous system.

Stereology is a methodology that provides meaningful quantitative descriptions of the geometry of three-dimensional structures from measurements that are made on two-dimensional images sampled from a structure of interest. The workshop will emphasize modern ”design based” stereology, which is characterized by the preparation and probing of tissue in such a manner that no assumptions about the size, shape, and orientation of the structures being quantified are necessary.
