We present a computer programme, MicroTrace, designed for user-guided digitisation of objects in biological sections. The programme is optimised for recording the spatial distribution of neuronal structures, such as large populations of tracer-labelled cell bodies or axonal plexuses, regional borders, and surfaces. System requirements are a PC running… CONTINUE READING
