Sulla fina anatomia degli organi centrali del sistema nervoso.

Milan: U. Hoepli, 1886.

Golgi’s histological studies made a clear conception of the nervous system possible for the first time. He demonstrated the existence of multipolar nerve-cells (Golgi cells) by means of his silver nitrate stain, and described the “Golgi apparatus” and “Golgi type II” nerve cells – cells with short axons ramified within the cortex. In 1906 he shared the Nobel Prize with Ramón y Cajal. First published as a series of papers in Riv. sper. Freniat., 1882-85. Chiefly known from the German translation, Untersuchungen über den feineren Bau des centralen und peripherischen Nervensystems (1894).

In 2000 Marina Bentivoglio and Larry W. Swanson translated, with an historical introduction, Golgi's paper on the mamalian hippocampus as it appeared in the 1886 work as "On the fine structure of the pes Hippocampi major (with plates XIII-XXIII)", Brain Research Bulletin 54 (2001) 461-483.
