  Ferenc Gallyas has published many silver methods, including at least
  one for Alzheimer's pathology that has been improved upon by various
  later authors.

  A forthcoming issue of the journal Biotechnic & Histochemistry
  (? the next one) will contain an illustrated review article by
  Dr D. Munoz on "Pathology of Dementia." This paper includes
  instructions for an effective Gallyas technique, and a critical
  evaluation of all the histological and immunohistochemical methods
  currently used in this branch of neuropathology.

  This includes a clickable link to a more informative web page.
