    [Truncated] Stereology is a collection of methods that aim to measure geometrical quantities, such as volumes and surface areas of three-dimensional objects using lower dimensional sampled information, such as two-dimensional plane sections or projections through the object.
    Stereological methods play a crucial role in the investigation of important biological questions, such as the effect of disease processes and aging on the number and sizes of cells in the brain. However, existing theory does not provide much information on the accuracy of these methods.
