Paper Abstract

Irradiation of brain tissue with a He-Cd U.V. laser microfluorimeter (325 nom) disclosed the presence of endogenous fluorochromes in discrete brain structures. The in situ emission spectra were measured and the fluorescence was recorded photographically. The fluorochromes were found to have properties similar to those of bioamine-aldehyde condensation products. In addition, observations were made which suggested that axonal transport of these fluorochromes occurs.
