  Life and Discoveries of Camillo Golgi
Camillo Golgi was born in July 1843 in Corteno, a village in the mountains near Brescia in northern Italy, where his father was working as a district medical officer.
Golgi graduated in 1865 and was, therefore, a student during the last years of the fights for the independence of Italy (Italy became united in 1870).
Golgi established in the Institute of General Pathology a very active laboratory, with international contacts, and was especially gifted in stimulating his students and foreign guests, including the Norwegian histologist and explorer Fridtjof Nansen (1861-1930), Nobel Laureate in Peace 1922.

  Golgi apparatus
The Golgi apparatus, named after its discoverer Camillo Golgi (1843-1926), is the central delivery system of all but the simplest eukaryotic cell.
The Golgi apparatus is present in all cells but tends to be more prominent where there are a lot of substances, such as enzymes, being secreted.

 Camillo Golgi Summary
Camillo Golgi, a clinician, researcher, and teacher, is best known for his Nobel Prize-winning work on the central nervous system, including his development of the chromate of silver method for better defining cell structures and his discovery of a small organ within the cytoplasm of the nerve cell now known as Golgi's apparatus.
Golgi also described the quotidian fever, which he believed was caused by a double infection of the tertian parasite; and the estivo-autumnal type of malaria, which he described as an altogether separate type of malaria.
Golgi was born in Corteno, province of Brescia, Italy.

Camillo Golgi was born in Corteno in the Lombardy, now called Corteno Golgi, where his father, Alessandro Golgi, a graduate of the University of Pavia, was the local doctor.
The discovery of Golgi cells led the German anatomist Wilhelm von Waldeyer-Hartz (1836-1921) to postulate in 1891 that the nerve cell is the basic structural unit of the nervous system, a critical point in the development of modern neurology.
Golgi was dean of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Pavia, and rector of this university for several years.

Golgi's use of silver salts in staining cells proved so effective in showing up the components and fine processes of nerve cells that even the synapses - tiny gaps between the cells - were visible.
Golgi was born near Brescia and studied at Pavia, where he spent most of his academic career, becoming professor 1876.
From his examinations of different parts of the brain, Golgi put forward the theory that there are two types of nerve cells, sensory and motor cells, and that axons are concerned with the transmission of nerve impulses.

Bartolomeo Camillo Golgi was born, the third of four sons, in Corteno (today Corteno Golgi), a small mountain village in the province of Brescia, Italy on 7 July 1843 (Figure 1).
Thereafter Golgi returned to the study of the nervous system and using a variant of his fl reaction he was able to observe, in 1897, a 'reticulum' in the cytoplasm of cells of spinal ganglia, the so-call 'internal reticular apparatus', subsequently christened the 'Golgi apparatus' or 'Golgi complex'.
In Golgi’s laboratory Carlo Martinotti identified the cell named after him in the cerebral cortex, Aldo Perroncito described the phases of regeneration in the nerves, Emilio Veratti observed the sarcoplasmic reticulum and Adelchi Negri discovered the intraneuronal inclusions (the Negri bodies) in animals and humans infected with the rabies virus (Figure_6).

Golgi was born in 1843 in Coteno, Italy, studied medicine in Pavia, and spent most of his career on the faculty of its university (Altamura, 1996).
Although Golgi misinterpreted the overall view of the organization of the nervous system, theorizing that the nervous system is a syncytial system and that the nervous impulse propagates along a diffuse network, his rival and Co-Nobel prize recipient Ramon y Cajal correctly interpreted the structure of the nervous system by using Golgi impregnation techniques (Bentivoglio).
Golgi was one of the first scientists to connect the areas of neuroscience and psychiatry, believing that experimental findings should be the basis of theories surrounding psychiatric disorders.

Before Golgi the colouring substances used for microscopic observation of cells were ffective means to show the microscopic structure of nearly all tissues of organism except nervous ells that appeared grossly and could not be identified properly.
Camillo Golgi also had the great merit to discover particular nerve endings situated in a passage zone between muscles and tendons, called Golgi’s corpuscles that have the very important function of controlling mobility and reflex movements.
Another fundamental discovery of Golgi is represented by one of the most important apparatus of the cell: the so called “Golgi’ s apparatus “, absolutely indispensable for life and that he was able to identify and describe thanks to his observations and colourings of tissues.

The Golgi complex is found in all cells except bacteria and plays an important role in the modification and transport of proteins within the cell.
Turning to the study of malaria (1885-93), Golgi found that the two types of intermittent malarial fevers (tertian, occurring every other day, and quartan, occurring every third day) are caused by different species of the protozoan parasite Plasmodium and that the paroxysms of fever coincide with release of the parasite's spores from red blood cells.

Proteins maturing in the Golgi are sorted in the TGN for transport to several locations in the cell depending upon the biochemical tags that are found on the individual proteins.

The visible characteristics of the organelle were first reported by Camillo Golgi (1843-1926) at a meeting of the Medical Society of Pavia on 19 April 1898 when he named it the 'internal reticular apparatus'.
Golgi apparatus is present in eucaryotic cells as one or more groups of flattened, membrane-bounded compartments or sacs.

In 1873 Golgi developed a revolutionary staining technique, still in use and named after him (Golgi staining or Golgi impregnation), which permitted for the first time a clear visualization of a nerve cell body with all its processes.
Using Golgi's technique, Cajal became the main supporter of the 'neuron theory' which correctly interpreted the nervous system as composed of anatomically and functionally distinct cells.
In the years 1886-1892, Golgi provided fundamental contributions to the study of malaria: he elucidated the cycle of the malaria agent, the Plasmodium, in red blood cells, and the temporal correlation between the release of the parasite in the blood and recurrent chills and fever.
