Dendrites and Axons
Morphometric properties of dendrites and axons change due to many different types of biological processes and conditions that include disease, development, aging, and drugs. Neurolucida helps researchers quantify these structural changes.
Trace dendrites and axons, and mark spines and synapses directly from the microscope or from image stacks, in 2D or 3D, and from one section or through multiple sections. After you trace a neuron, Neurolucida provides a vast amount of data and analyses including dendrite and axon length, volume, surface area, branching order, tree order, etc.
The completely automatic option includes the following steps:
2. Save it to Biolucida to store and organize microscope images
3. Open the image stack with Neurolucida 360 (freeing up your microscope for another project)
4. Obtain accurate data and analysis for publication
