Abstract

The Purkinje cells in apparently normal human cerebellum were investigated with the Golgi-Cox method. Most Purkinje cells have the long axis of the soma directed vertically to the pial surface. Even the small number of disoriented somata have the dendritic system adjusted to a normal vertical pattern by a bend in the primary or secondary dendrites. The primary dendrites of a single Purkinje cell ranged from one to four, the majority being one or two. There were occasional expansions of the dendrites.
