Caption: Camillo Golgi (1842-1926), Italian histologist. who researched nerves, cell structure and the malaria parasite. Golgi developed a staining agent based on silver compounds in 1873. It allowed him to observe cells in unprecedented detail. He discovered that nerve cells do not touch but are separated by gaps called synapses. In the cerebellum he found specialised cells (Golgi cells) that used projections (dendrites) to connect many other nerve cells. Golgi found flattened structures (Golgi bodies) within cells. In the 1880s Golgi distinguished different species of the Plasmodium parasite, which caused different forms of malaria. Golgi was awarded the 1906 Nobel Prize in Physiology or medicine.
