The quality of morphometric data obtained by stereological methods depends on the sampling scheme adopted. In the light of recent advances in sampling theory for stereology a sampling strategy has been developed which differs significantly from that used in previous studies. It operates with a cascade of four sampling levels and adopts the principle of A-weighted sampling, a method that should eliminate bias and possibly yield smaller variances. This method is described and discussed in detail… CONTINUE READING
