The segmentation of neural cells is critical for the study of the brain. However unlike other cells in the human body, neural cells have a particular elongated shape rendering their detection and segmentation challenging. This project is about developing a computer vision solution that will admit a digital microscopy image as input and calculate the precise location of the neural cells in it as output. You will be working with deep convolutional neural networks designed for instance segmentation and object detection.
