Golgi staining in the mouse cerebral cortex and hippocampus
With its grooves and ridges, the cerebral cortex is the “brainy-looking” part of our brain. It’s divided into the left and right hemispheres and plays an important role in memory, attention, thought and language. Nestled underneath the cortex is the hippocampus. As part of the limbic system, the hippocampus controls emotion, behavior, motivation and the establishment of long-term memories.
