cell counting on an image with python

Hello everyone,
I have to work on a code to count number of neurons on an image and to automated it for multiples images.
Do you have any tool guide to provide to me ?
Sincerely yours

That's an interesting problem, but far outside of the scope of the NEURON Forum. You might try doing a web search for "automated neuron counting". I just now did that with Duck Duck Go, and saw three or four possibly useful hits on the first page of results.

hello ted,
thank you for your answer.
So i made a mistake when i wrote my post sorry.
I have brain slices with fluorescent signal ( i.e :eYFP) and i would like to count the number of pixels corresponding to the fluo signal. So it is not counting cells.
Sorry for the mistake.
regards

With regard to "neuron counting" (and might even be relevant to your question), MicroBrightField is presenting a 1 hour webinar on stereology on April 21 starting at 11 AM EDT. It's free but registration is required--see https://register.gotowebinar.com/regist ... 8440137741
