Well, I was talking to Rodolfo Llinas today and figured I would bring
this up even though I did not have the pix or the links with me.  From
my description, he thought, as I did, that they were probably
cerebellar nucleus cells and he showed me some pix from Cajal which
seemed to be similar. 

I will try to have him take a look at the specific pix you are talking
about some time next week, if time permits.
