Camillo Golgi was awarded the Nobel prize in 1906 for his studies on the fine anatomy of the central nervous system. His wide present popularity depends on his discovery of the cell apparatus, the tendon mechanoreceptor and the tactile corpuscles of the fingertips that are named after him. However, Golgi also made important contributions to nephrology. In 1882, he published novel observations on the mechanism of renal hypertrophy, which he understood to be due to renal cell proliferation. Two…

The Impossible Interview with the Man of the Hidden Biological Structures

TLDR
This paper presents an “impossible interview” to Professor Camillo Golgi, placed in time in December 1906, on the basis of Golgi's original writings.

Optimized Golgi-Cox Staining Validated in the Hippocampus of Spared Nerve Injury Mouse Model

TLDR
A modified Golgi-Cox staining protocol is presented that can stain mouse hippocampal neurons within 8 days and maintained, and even improved, the quality of traditional Golgi and Cox staining as applied to hippocampal neuronal morphology in SNI mice.

History of studying the kidney pathology in the mirror of numismatics. Report 2. Development of nephrology

TLDR
This work presents a catalog of more than 400 numismatic materials that reflects the stages of development of the study of the structure and function of the kidneys, methods for diagnosing and treating diseases, and brief biographies of physicians who have made an invaluable contribution to the formation of this scientific discipline.

Retinoic acid increases the length and volume density of ducts in the rat embryonic pancreas

TLDR
It is suggested that RA stimulated the production of additional progenitor cells and not proliferation of existing insulin cells, and may relate to the increased volume density and length density of the ducts in RA‐treated explants.

Gray’s Anatomy of Stones: Henry Vandyke Carter

TLDR
Anatomy has become the iconic science that represents man’s earliest understanding of disease and the history of anatomy is closely associated with the rise of the pathophysiology of urolithiasis.
