Histochemistry - A tool for primary image formation in neurobiology

Open Access

Attached document(s)



Neurohistochemical techniques are presented with the aim to form an introduction to the neurobiology section of the IV-ESS proceedings. Detailed protocols with comments of the Falck-Hillarp formaldehyde fluorescence methodology and the indirect immunofluorescence technique of Coons and collaborators, respectively, are given to enable a clear understanding of the basis for image formation in certain types of neurobiological investigations.

Keywords : distribution, Falck-Hillarp formaldehyde fluorescence method, histochemistry, immunofluorescence method, localization, neurotransmitters
