An interactive 3D axon tracking and labeling tool to obtain quantitative information by reconstruction of the axonal structures in the entire innervation field. AxonTracker-3D has been developed to facilitate the connectome function analysis in large-scale quantitative neurobiology studies. It can display the three orthogonal views of the current location of the centerline along with a visualization of the tracking results. The workflow consists of three steps: (i) re-slice the axon tubes along its orientation; (ii) extract 2D and 3D features from the slices and spheres rounding the center points; (iii) select samples to train AdaBoost classifier. Questions such as whether the spatial distribution of the axons are random in nature or follow a certain pattern can be answered with this tool.


Gives a reliable quantitative analysis of neurite growth, providing counts of neurite number and neurite area at different distances from the explant. Moreover, this plug-in follows lineal and semi-logarithmic analysis of the Sholl method, yielding a numerical value of neurite outgrowth useful for comparing different experimental conditions. Neurite-J provides a quantification method of neurite arbors in 3D organotypic cultures that gives the researcher an easy, fast and reliable tool to study axonal growth.
