Application Note: Measuring Neurite Outgrowth with the SpectraMax MiniMax Cytometer and MetaMorph Software
29 March 2019

Neurons create connections via extensions of their cellular body called dendrites or “processes”. This biological phenomena is referred to as neurite outgrowth and is regulated by complex intracellular signaling events. Understanding the signaling mechanisms driving neurite outgrowth provides valuable insight for interpreting neurotoxic compound screening data and for elucidating factors influencing neural regeneration.
