Automated counting of newborn cells during neurogenesis?

Abstract

The genesis of new neurons in the adult human brain currently lies in the focus of many research groups. In order to quantify neurogenesis in animals, newborn cells are labelled with specific markers such as BrdU; in brain sections these can later be analyzed and counted through the use of a confocal microscope. However so far, this counting process has… (More)
