A manual describing tissue fixation, processing and staining of the central and peripheral nervous system's material and muscle. It is designed for pathologists and technicians who are asked to process material and to give advice about diagnostic histological staining methods and tissue fixation. Each chapter details laboratory techniques, including specimen fixation, embedding and staining as applied to different parts of the nervous system, muscle and eye. Micrographs indicate the effects of suboptimal fixation and staining. A brief explanation of specimen dissection is added, where relevant, to aid the selection of appropriate tissue blocks by clinicians unfamiliar with the nervous system.
