Two-dimensional versus three-dimensional cell counting: a practical perspective.

Abstract

In recent years, it has been argued by some neuroanatomists that three-dimensional (3-D) counting approaches must be used in studies of neural systems, so that 'unbiased' counts of neurons can be obtained. By contrast, two-dimensional (2-D) cell-counting methods are said to be 'assumption-based' and to yield inaccurate results. Working from the premise that… (More)
