Neuron Tracing

Neuron Tracing and Reconstruction

By tracing neurons, researchers get digital reconstructions that can then be morphometrically analyzed to understand more about neuronal structure. Data can be obtained about somas, dendrites, axons, spines, and synapses to examine an experimental hypothesis. The entire neuron can be traced to develop a complete digital neuron reconstruction for quantitative and qualitative analysis. 

Trace neurons with Neurolucida in 2D or 3D, from a single section or through multiple sections, directly from a microscope image. To trace neurons even faster, use Neurolucida 360 to automatically trace dendrites, somas, axons, spines, and synapses from acquired images.

Neurolucida also provides tools for brain mapping to map neuronal pathways or map the distribution of a particular cell type.
