By A. G. Brown BSc, MB, ChB, PhD (auth.)

The study defined during this ebook arose, largely, from a feeling of frustration. For a couple of years I have been learning the body structure of the spinocervical tract, a somatosensory pathway, within the cat's spinal wire. yet i didn't understand, accurately, the place the cells of foundation of the tract have been situated and as a result didn't recognize what they gave the look of or even if there have been any correlations among constitution and serve as. It used to be real that electrophysiolo­ gical experiments had indicated their possible scenario within the dorsal horn, and anatomical paintings had defined the morphology of cells that have been more likely to supply upward push to the axons of the tract; yet this used to be now not passable. With the book, by means of Stretton and Kravitz in 1968, of the Procion Yellow ionophoretic approach for intracellular staining, a brand new software grew to become to be had for learning the morphology of physiologically pointed out neurones. We used the strategies and, even if very happy with the attractive visual appeal of the dendritic bushes of neurones visible within the fluorescence microscope, we have been back annoyed, this time through the lack of Procion Yellow to stain axons for any significant size. accordingly, P. ok. Rose and P. J. Snow and that i started to try and enhance a mode that might stain the axon, including its collaterals, as well as the soma and dendrites of an intracellularly re­ corded neurone.
