What is it about?
To understand neuronal survival after a hypoxic-ischemic (HI) attack on the neonatal brain, it is imperative to distinguish between the healthy and dying neurons/cells in histological brain images of HI sheep models. This paper took the first step towards the automated classification of healthy and dying cells in HI images. The paper proposes a novel machine-learning method for that purpose.

Why is it important?
The histological analysis of neuronal survival after imposing a HI attack on animal models is a manual assessment process. It is a time-consuming task that is very much subjective to human perspectives, introducing inter-rater variability in the assessment. Thus, the need to automate the process that will bring much-needed transparency and accuracy to it.
