Neuronal morphology

Through fully automated morphological analysis, Omnisphero enables the user to quantify neurite area, neurite length, and number of branching points of either the entire neuron population or of only clearly separated neurite areas consisting of only one or two neurons.

Neuronal morphology
Endpoints of neuronal morphology assessed by Omnisphero: The green ellipses represent the neuron cell bodies. From the border of the cell bodies, the neurite area, neurite length and number of branching points can be evaluated.

The advantage of using only clearly separated areas consisting of one or two neurons circumvents a possible overlap of neurites present in big neurite areas consisting of multiple neurons.
