More than a century ago, the Spanish anatomist Santiago Ramon y Cajal
became famous for his detailed and beautiful line drawings of neurons, which
first began to reveal the overwhelming complexity of the brain. On the basis of his
experience in drawing hundreds of neurons, Ramon y Cajal proposed that
learning is a matter of neurons strengthening connections to one another. This
proposal was made at a time when there was wide acceptance of the doctrine
that past infancy ...

Some one has asked, "What do a blue sky and a beautiful prospect add to one's
soul?" And Cajal replies, "Nothing, to one who lives always within himself, but
very much to one who knows how to open his senses to the splendors of heaven
and the harmonies of the universe. ... His spirit had shrunk from the horrors of
skeleton study and now his brain and stomach rebelled against dissection and
could be forced to endure it only when he began to see the beautiful processes of

Better fixation and staining techniques, developed between 1840 and 1893, led
to the beautiful (and morphologically correct) drawings of Heinrich Müller (Müller,
1857), Max Shultze (Schultze, 1866), and eventually Santiago Ramón y Cajal (
Ramón y Cajal, 1893). Their studies established with certainty the direction of
information flow in the retina. During the same period the photopigment
rhodopsin was isolated (Kühne, 1878), and its participation in rodmediated vision
was ...

And it is especially fitting that this monograph should derive from an Institute
named for the great Spanish neuroscientist, Santiago Ramon y Cajal, as it is
unquestionably one of the best accounts of the structure of the brain of a
commonly used ... It is for this reason that when one is looking for a more general
view of the neuronal architecture of any region of the brain, one turns again and
again to the magnificent drawings of Cajal, Lorente de No and others of a prior
generation, and, ...
