THE VOLUME OF A NEURON ESTIMATED WITH THE PLANAR ROTATOR PROBE

PR-1

Section thickness required: thick sections if using a disector for number weighted sampling

Orientation of tissue required: isotropic or vertical sections

The example above is from a thick vertical section, the optical disector was used to pick the neuron without bias in a number weighted manner, and the vertical direction (white arrow) must be indicated because it affects the grid placement.
