Adult neurogenesis research draws on a large range of methods but is dependent on a few critical techniques, most notably immunohistochemistry for bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU), confocal microscopy, and stereology. The chapter discusses the requirements for supporting a claim of "adult neurogenesis" and the methodological pitfalls and problems.
