Abstract

MOST histologists refer to the possible existence of a ground substance in the brain. Neurofibrils or glial fibres of the cortex impregnated in a successful silver preparation by no means completely fill the space available. Presumably in life these nerve terminals and glial fibres are even further separated from one another, since the processes of fixation, dehydration, etc., produce considerable shrinkage.
