The development of CARTOS, a system for Computer-Aided Reconstruction by Tracing Serial Sections, has been directed by efforts to investigate some rather specific biological questions. We want to study the detailed structure of simple nerve nets so that the anatomy of individual nerve cells and their fibers can be recorded in three dimensions and the morphologically visible synapses connecting them noted. Furthermore, we would like to carry out these morphological studies as a function of time… CONTINUE READING
