Tissue from mature rat and cat cochleas was stained with basic dyes in order to distinguish between the cell bodies of type I and II spiral ganglion neurons. This same tissue was then stained with protargol, or processed immunocytochemically using a monoclonal neurofilament antibody, RT-97. Type II neurons were intensely stained, whereas type I neurons were not. We conclude that type II neurons can be clearly distinguished by their abundant neurofilament content.
