A comparative study of the distribution of a simple esterase and acetylcholinesterase in the cerebellar cortex of mouse and bat has been made. The Purkinje layer is intensely positive for simple esterase in both species. The granular and molecular layers showed mild to moderate activity in mouse and intense activity in bat. Acetylcholinesterase in cerebellar layers of bat is more intense than in mouse. In bat cerebellum, acetylcholinesterase is observed in the dendrites of Purkinje cells, but not in their cell bodies. Acetylcholinesterase was not found in Purkinje cells of mouse.
