Accurately quantifying nervous system composition is critical for evaluating significant changes over time or after injury/treatment, but numbers are traditionally obtained by human observation. With machine learning, it becomes possible to train software to recognize and quantify cells of interest. This symposium features talks on automated acquisition of image data sets and subsequent analysis by machine learning-assisted image analysis and stereology.
Machine Learning in Quantitative Stereology and Neurohistology is a Society for Neuroscience Satellite Event (SAT40) on October 19, 2019, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM in the Chicago McCormick Convention Center Room: N227. The satellite event is organised by Daniel A. Peterson.
