Camillo Golgi (1843 –1926): scientist extraordinaire and pioneer figure of modern neurology
- BiologyAnatomy & cell biology
Camillo Golgi was an extraordinary scientist whose contributions in the domain of neuroanatomy proved to be critical for emergence of neuroscience as a sovereign scientific discipline and was jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1906.
The Original Histological Slides of Camillo Golgi and His Discoveries on Neuronal Structure
- BiologyFront. Neuroanat.
An account of the original slides on the nervous system from Golgi's laboratory available nowadays at the Golgi Museum and Historical Museum of the University of Pavia is provided and images of neurons from his slides are shown for the first time.
Camillo Golgi, nobel laureate: the olfactory bulb.
- Biology, MedicineArchives of general psychiatry
In Golgi’s hands, his findings and views on neuronal communication did not allow him to accept neuron theory, leading him, partly on clinical grounds, to maintain the older reticular network theory of neural connection by anastomosis.
The ribbon architecture of the Golgi apparatus is not restricted to vertebrates
It is shown that sea urchin embryonic cells assemble Golgi ribbons during early development, indicating that the Golgi ribbon appears to be an ancient cellular feature evolved before the split between echinoderms and chordates.
Growth of the Mammalian Golgi Apparatus during Interphase
- BiologyMolecular and Cellular Biology
The growth of the mammalian Golgi apparatus in its protein content and volume during interphase is demonstrated and the coordination between cell size and Golgi growth is revealed via activation of the protein synthesis machinery in early interphase.
The History of Neuroscience 5: Discovery of the Neuron and Its Connections
- BiologyEpilia: Epilepsy and Community
Santiago Ramón y Cajal, the founder of modern neuroscience, finally established the cornerstone of the neuron doctrine, according to which the nerve cell is the basic unit of the nervous system and information flows from unit to unit without direct fusion.
Plant Cell Biology: When, How, and Why?
About 250 years before Sachs’s definition of the cell, Robert Hooke observed cells for the first time on cork and coined the term “cell,” which started a new wave in the study of plant biology.
Questions on unusual Mimivirus-like structures observed in human cells
- Biology, MedicineF1000Research
The main hypotheses are that the structures could be either giant viruses having a retroviral antigenicity or ancestral cellular components having a viral origin, however, other possible alternatives have been proposed to explain the nature and function of the newly identified structures.

Linked to the cell organelle he had discovered, Golgi’s contributions to cytology had a great impact on biomedical sciences of the twentieth century.

The discovery of the Golgi apparatus is added to the long list of accidental discoveries because the man after whom it is named was not a cytologist engaged in studying the inner structure of the cell, but a pathologist searching to prove a neuroanatomical theory.

Further Remarks on the Golgi Element
The Golgi element has been reinvestigated in the same kinds of cells as were the subject of the author9s 1944 paper and the opinion as to the structural plan set out in the earlier paper has been confirmed in the main.
Memoirs: The Structure and Chemical Composition of the Golgi Element
In this investigation reliance has been placed chiefly on vital observations and on the results of the formal-sudan-black technique, a colouring agent with an intense affinity for lipoids, to give an accurate picture of the structure of the Golgi element during life.
A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE GOLGI COMPLEX
- BiologyThe Journal of biophysical and biochemical cytology
A comparison will be made of the ultrastructure of the Golgi complex in a series of cell types, one primarily secretory, one primary absorptive, one thought to be both secretory and absorptive in function, and one in the process of differentiation.
