Can you specify which version of the Golgi method you use, and what
exactly are your results/problems. Also, are your cultures grown on
membranes, and if so, are they present throughout the staining procedure?
	As regards other methods, do you require the complete neuron
with processes, as in Golgi, or would just cell bodies do?
