Abstract:

Methods of i rpret ion capable of ex racting useful information from the complexity of Golgi preparations were developed. A graphical method describing Golgi stained nerv cells i erms of a sp ctrum of dendritic patterns ranging between extremes is given. The resulting graph or dendrogram can be used to compare regions of the r icul r formation a d est bli h the degree of difference or analogy between them. The study points to the existenc of two main types of cell groups within the brai on the basis of their dendritic patt rn 1 nuclei or cell clusters with dendrites exhibiting characteristic features for the cell group under consideration and 2 ill-defined regio s in which the nerve cells lack specific dendritic features.
