For the past four decades, members of the International Society For Stereology have developed reliable and efficient methods for unbiased (design-based) stereology. Sampling and analysis of biological tissue using these techniques provide the state-of-the-art research tools in the neurosciences, psychology, toxicology, and pathology.
Introduce the theory & practice of modern stereology as applied to neural structure.
Improve skills in experimental design & critical analysis of quantitative neuromorphometry.
Train participants on the use of cutting edge computerized stereology systems.
Provide an informal environment for fruitful exchange between participants and instructors.
