The number of neurons under a square millimeter of cortical surface has been reported to be the same across five cortical areas and five species [Rockel et al. (1980) Brain 103(2):221-244] despite differences in cortical thickness between the areas. Although the accuracy of this result has been the subject of sharp debate since its publication approximately(More)
Increasing numbers of neuroanatomists are using stereological methods, and unbiased stereological estimation rules recommend the use of guard zones with the optical disector method to count objects of interest within a volume. Although these methods are statistically unbiased, we believe there is a need to explore sources of systematic bias (e.g., effects(More)
The involvement of volunteers in monitoring programs is currently well established in scientific research and is often addressed as “citizens’ science”. A simple but focused training course, held before participants take action, is crucial to obtain sound and reliable data when volunteers operate in the field. Further to providing validated information,(More)
Enhanced visualization of scientific data can widely improve the understanding of the phenomenon or data being studied. Aiming at the actual demand of scientific management for marine environmental information, the Italian consulting company Underwater Bio-CArtography (UBICA s.r.l.) designed a marine environmental information service system based on GIS and(More)
Three decades ago, Rockel et al. proposed that neuronal surface densities (number of neurons under a square millimeter of surface) of primary visual cortices (V1s) in primates is 2.5 times higher than the neuronal density of V1s in nonprimates or many other cortical regions in primates and nonprimates. This claim has remained controversial and much debated.(More)
The amygdaloid complex (AC), a key component of the limbic system, is a brain region critical for the detection and interpretation of emotionally salient information. Therefore, changes in its structure and function are likely to provide correlates of mood and emotion disorders, diseases that afflict a large portion of the human population. Previous gross(More)
