As for the name it comes from the discoverer: Camillo Golgi, Professor in
Medicine at the University of Pavia (Italy) and Nobel Prize, at the
beginning of this century.
Strucuture and functions of the GA are several and yet not completely
understood, but a lot has been achieved in almost 80 years since its
discovery. Why don't you start from a Biology textbook (any dealing with
cell biology will be enough, just ask to your local library)?
Hope it helps. G. Maga
