Abstract

Focal disruptions in axonal microtubules are a common consequence of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs), and the ability to quantify these disruptions is essential to evaluating in vitro injury models and therapies. Here, we develop and implement an algorithm to demonstrate the ability to quantify focal disruptions in the microtubules of cultured neurons. The algorithm is implemented using a combination of ImageJ for pre-processing and Matlab for axon analysis and tubulin breakdown identification.
