Golgi staining and related methods are done on whole, fresh pieces of brain tissue, not on sections. There are some techniques for fixed specimens. Instructions can be found in books of neurohistological technique; older ones often have plenty of technical tips. A good start would be: Santini, M., ed. (1975). Golgi Centennial Symposium: Perspectives in Neurobiology. New York: Raven Press.
