Paper Abstract

Neuron tracing of serial sections is the process of reconstructing the three-dimensional structure of a neuron from a series of two-dimensional cross sectional images. Automatic neuron tracing is a challenging computer vision problem. This paper first describes the CARTOS-ACE neuron tracing system developed at Columbia University. It then describes the program TRACER-1 and presents a detailed example of its execution. It then examines TRACER-1's performance more generally and discusses further improvements, many of which will require encoding more knowledge into the next version of the program.
