Design-based stereology is the standard methodology for quantitative histology
because it is particularly useful for the identification of subtle yet important
alterations in the morphology of the nervous system during development or disease.
MBF Bioscience has been in the business of stereology for more than ten years
since the creation of Stereo Investigator, the most advanced and full-featured
stereology package available.
MBF continues to take an active role in assisting researchers become proficient in this emerging methodology with the publication of the newly revised second edition of Stereology for Biological Research with a Focus on Neuroscience, a concise, accessible book written by MBF experts. It introduces design-based stereology to scientists interested in, but not familiar with, the application of this methodology in neuroscience and other biomedical research fields.
Covering topics such as the prerequisites for stereology research, methodology for design-based stereology, application of design-based stereology in biomedical research (such as stem cell, lung, kidney research, and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases) as well as the future of stereology, this text is an excellent first resource for scientists.
