Cerebellar cortical neurons immunoreactive to anti-gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) antibody were examined in the rat. In addition to the Purkinje, Golgi, basket and stellate cells, spindle-shaped cells lying just below the Purkinje cell layer were found to be strongly immunoreactive to the antibody. By the combination of immunofluorescence and hematoxylin stainings, these GABA-positive cells were shown to be the Lugaro cells. Unlike the immunopositive small Golgi cell, the pale cell was not immunoreactive to the antibody.
