[…] inc., lexington, ma)., these software packages do not perform satisfactorily when dealing with image stacks in which multiple neural processes branch and intertwine with each other. for instance, neuronj works on 2d image only, but the complexity of fasciculated nerve fibers makes it necessary to distinguish individual processes by exploring the full 3d data set. moreover, when neural […]

[…] 6 gb ram)., nerve fibers visible in all mosaics were traced using two approaches: manual and fully automated. an experienced observer manually traced the centerlines of all visible nerves using the neuronj tracing plugin for imagej (publicly available at in the acquired images, as previously described. the resulting manual tracings were checked for consistency […]

[…] in 10 fields of view for each treatment was counted and measured using imagej software. neurite exhibiting at least half of the cell body length was counted as a neuronal process. specifically, the “neuronj” plug-in (version 1.4.3) of nih-imagej software (version 1.50 meijering et al., ) was used to quantify the average neurite length of each neuron at different time points (day 1 and day 4).
