Legacy_GOLGI I & II
Our Golgi series are dedicated to the Italian physiologist Camillo Golgi, who developed a particularly useful staining method for cells in the nervous system. The brain is a tightly packed collection of cells with very thin, long, tangled ramifications (dendrites and axons), which form an indistinguishable tissue conglomerate. Our understanding of the brain has been highly advanced and indeed made possible in the first place by staining methods revealing individual cells or populations of cells. The Golgi stain is taken up randomly by individual cells which turn dark, thus allowing the characterization of their morphology, position, and brain areas covered. It is still not understood what makes some cell pick up the stain and some others not. Love your new jewelry and stay curious!
