This is a monograph devoted to the discussion of the newer methods of supravital staining of nerve tissue. The silver methods of staining of Golgi and of Ramon y Cajal had a limited field according to the author. The Bielschowsky was an advance. It did not stain, however, all the neuroplasma but only the primary nerve fibers. The pericellular elements were poorly stained and the neuroplasma of the nerve fibers barely demonstrated. The greater part of the monograph is devoted to the discussion of the newer methods of fixation and of supravital stains with methylene blue developed in the recent years in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The work of the School of Vorobiev is discussed in considerable detail. The method enables the demonstration of the nervous system in its finest divisions. The newer methods of fixation permit preparations to be examined with the oil immersion lens. Sections of
