Do Unbiased Methods Guarantee Accurate Results?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. Although the use of unbiased methods is a necessary and important prerequisite, a number of avoidable non-stereological factors may also introduce error into results. Here are a few most common non-stereological sources that can skew data from their expected values:

Recognition error arises when objects of interest cannot be unambiguously identified. For instance, certain diseases cause cells to acquire a different appearance compared to their…

Does All Morphology Research Require Stereology?

From Peter R. Mouton, Ph.D.

Chief Scientific Officer

SRC International

Bioscientists often approach me with publications using so-called biased stereology (assumption- and model-based methods) to quantify morphological endpoints.

The questioner typically has a statement and/or question:

Statement: “I want to quantify the same endpoint, e.g., total cell number.”

Question: “If reviewers accepted this paper, why should I…

Stereology for Academic Institutions

A large and growing number of journal editors and grant reviewers consider design-based (unbiased) stereology the “best practices” for quantifying morphological changes in biological tissue.  To assist scientists with their stereology studies, the award-winning Stereologer system was developed by stereologists and bioscientists at the Johns Hopkins University…

Neurostereology: Unbiased Stereology Of Neural Systems

Stereological methods provide researchers with unparalleled quantitative data from tissue samples and allow for evidence-based research advances. Presenting a concise introduction to the methodology and application of stereological research, Neurostereology provides detailed applications of these methods across a range of neuroscience sub-disciplines. Neurostereology gives a sound footing for basic and clinical researchers and advanced students looking to…

What do deactivations in neuroimaging mean?

By now, we’re all familiar with the colourful spots and blobs associated with brain imaging. The assumption is often that areas which ‘light up’ are increasingly activated – and are, as such, implicitly more ‘important’ – in the task under study. But researchers using brain imaging techniques know this to be untrue...more

Hyperscanning BCI - A P300 based communication tool for several

users to cooperatively and simultaneously spell.



Many futurists believe that people in the distant future will use

advanced technology to work together more directly, something

like a “hive mind”. People could use technology to help them

not just work together but also think together, accomplishing

goals more quickly and effectively. That future may not be so distant.…
