Quantitative microscopic analysis of histological sections of brain tissue

Richard A. Armstrong

Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputChapter


This article reviews methods for quantifying the abundance of histological features in thin tissue sections of brain such as neurons, glia, blood vessels, and pathological lesions. The sampling methods by which quantitative measures can be obtained are described. In addition, methods are described for determining the spatial pattern of an object and for measuring the degree of spatial correlation between two or more histological features.
