Announcing Neurolucida Version 2018

Neurolucida Version 2018


The Redesigned Neurolucida Version 2018

With the new version of Neurolucida, researchers can reconstruct and analyze neurons with greater speed, efficiency and ease.

The new, revamped user interface is:

  • Easy to Navigate – The ribbon bar design is task-oriented to make it easy to find what you need. A dynamic search bar and a quick access toolbar also aid productivity.
  • Better Organized – Frequently used tools are prominent and easy to access. Tools are grouped by their function, and advanced settings are easily accessible.
  • Cleaner and Simpler – The new user interface is modern and intuitive, making it easier to learn and to train new lab members.
  • Version 2018 also integrates with the latest microscopic imaging devices and computer hardware, so you can trace neurons with cutting-edge microscope technology.

New Performance Features

There are over a hundred new features to go along with the new user interface, including:

  • Edit reconstructions in an interactive 3D environment when tracing from image stacks
  • Improved handling of big image data
  • New analyses in a redesigned Neurolucida Explorer - the companion software to Neurolucida that performs all the quantitative analyses generated from neurons digitally reconstructed with Neurolucida
