Yong Tang is Vice Dean of the College of Basic Medical Sciences and Professor of the Department of Histology and Embryology, College of Basic Medical Sciences, Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China. Tang received his postdoctoral training and became Assistant Researcher for the Mount Sinai Medical Center, UCLA Medical School, Northwestern University Medical School, USA. Tang received his Ph.D. degree from Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark and his M.D. degree from Sichuan University, Sichuan, China. His main research interests concerned with the use of a variety of techniques including histological methods, immunohistochemical methods, light and electron microscopy techniques, modern stereological techniques, and animal models to study the morphometric changes of central nervous system during aging and in various neurodegenerative diseases. His current research interests include: modulation and plasticity of myelinated nerve fibers, neurons, and synapses in the brain. Tang think that by using immunohistochemical methods, light and electronic microscope, and unbiased stereological techniques, he is able to quantitatively estimate the changes in the total volume, total length, and total number of the brain structures of interest in different treatments.
