For all other antibodies, staining was best on thicker vibratome sections. 5 cm blocks of tissue were immersion fixed in 4 % paraformaldehyde for 12 to 24 hours or in Bouin's solution for 1-2 hours. 1 % azide before sectioning. For staining of floating sections, peroxidase-, ~-galactosidase- or alkaline phosphatase-conjugated secondary antibodies were used. The secondary antibody was specific to the species and the isotype of the primary antibody. Sections were usually incubated for 16 hours at 4°C.

For some antibodies assessment of adequacy of staining was possible due to the presence of tissue "internal controls". For example, ubiquitin-positive granular degeneration of myelin is an invariant age-related change. If the white matter lacked this type of staining, the stain quality was considered inadequate and was repeated. For neurofilament antibodies, a similar internal control was staining ofaxons in white matter. For antibodies that 34 D. W. Dickson et al. Table 1.
