About this book

A collection of the works and thoughts of Santiago Ramon y Cajal. The text is a rendition of the original Spanish version, with additional facts taken from the French translation, making this the `definitive Cajal' for scientists and scholars interested in the original thoughts of probably the most prominent neuroscientist of all time.

... Auber die vorliegende Aubersetzung des ersten Bandes der a'Textura del Sistema Nervioso del Hombre y de los Vertebrados' lasst sich nur Positives berichten. Das Buch ist sowohl Medizinhistorikern und Neurowissenschaftlern, insbesondere Neurophysiologen und Neuroanatomen, zu empfehlen. Es ist ausserst interessant wie Ramon y Cajal zu seiner Zeit Neuronen, Gliazellen und Nervenfasern u. a. beschrieb, analysierte, interpretierte und vor allem zeichnete. Die kritische und vergleichende Diskussion sowohl der Morphologie als auch der Physiologie ist auch noch aus heutiger Perspektive beispielhaft ... Annals of Anatomy/Anatomischer Anzeiger, 1/2000
