2. Neurology


Donaggio, in a recent work, drew attention to a zone surrounding the nucleus in the nerve-cell. It did not stain, and he considers it a part of the canalicular system for the nourishment of the cell and nucleus. In this paper Colucci draws attention to the fact that he has previously described a similar condition as the perinuclear “halo.” While the histological fact of its presence may now he taken as proved, he is not altogether prepared to accept Donaggio's conclusions as regards its function without further investigation.
