Abstract

The principle that formed the basis of the most popular ioassumption basedlm stereological methods for counting cells that were available prior to the advent of the more recently developed iedesign basedlg methods will be described in general terms. The major weaknesses inherent in the older methods will be described, along with how they have been eliminated by the design based methods.
