The aim of this study was to investigate the density and distribution of synapses on the axonal tree of a pyramidal cell in the mouse cortex. The method used was a new variation of Golgi-electron microscopy involving the modification of Colonnier, the photochemical method of Blackstad and the use of phosphotungstic acid. A segment of axon collateral of 87 microns carried 17 synapses, the proximal 27 microns being free of synapses. The main axon was postsynaptic down to a length of 30 microns… CONTINUE READING
