Product Name: Frontiers Research Topic Ebook

Digital microscopy (confocal microscopy, multiphoton microscopy, electron microscopy) has revolutionized neuroanatomy. Atlases of whole brains, of parts of the brain and of neural circuits are becoming more and more important to accumulate neuroanatomical data in 3D, construct reference atlases ("standard brains"), provide an interactive graphical surface for databanks on brain and neuron related data, and to quantify morphological data. These diverse options require highly sophisticated software and close interaction between neuroanatomists, physiologists and science computing experts. The various attempts and developments include not only research institutions but also software companies. How can the multiple and diverse work going on in many research groups and companies coordinated and integrated for improving the experimental and computational workµ Which problems should be solved with first priority and which can be postponed for laterµ Which developments on the side of the instruments (light and electron microscopes) should be fostered.
