The synaptic connections of a specific type of identified cortical interneuron, the axo-axonic cell, were studied using Golgi methods. In the light-microscope axo-axonic cells were demonstrated in certain layers of the primary and secondary visual cortex of rat, cat and monkey, in the motor cortex of cat and in the subiculum and pyriform cortex of rat. The dendrites originating from the oval soma were oriented radially in a lower and upper spray within a cylinder about 100-150 microns wide. E...Expand abstract
