In the past 15 years it has become possible to determine the fractal dimension (Df) of complex objects, including neurons, by automated image analysis methods. However, there are many unresolved issues that need to be addressed. In this paper we discuss how the Df calculated by different methods may vary and how fractal analysis may be of use for retinal ganglion cell characterization. The goal of this work was to acknowledge inherent sources of variation during measurement and evaluate current… Expand
