By light microscopic observation of mouse brain stained by Holmes' silver method deeply stained cytoplasmic inclusion bodies were seen in almost all nerve cells of the locus coeruleus. Electron microscopy of tissue samples from floating Vibratome sections stained by Holmes' silver method demonstrated that the nucleolus-like bodies in the cytoplasm were densely impregnated with gold particles. Hence, it was confirmed that the cytoplasmic inclusion bodies of paraffin sections stained by Holmes' method are identical to the so-called nucleolus-like bodies seen in electron microscopic studies.
