Studies on the Piriform Lobe presents the findings of neuroanatomical research on the complex arrangements of nerve cells, and on the intricate interconnections of their fibrous processes, in the mammalian forebrain. Descriptions of the double- and triple-impregnation variants of the Golgi method, developed by the author in order to improve the staining of nerve cells, are given in full detail.
