About this book

The second and the other two volumes offer the scientific community, the works and thoughts of Santiago Ramon y Cajal by the faithful rendition of the original Spanish version of the "Texture of the Nervous System of Man and the Vertebrates" (1899-1904), with additional facts contained in the French translation (1909-1911). These non-English versions are being quoted an average of 200 times yearly in the scientific literature. In sum, the collection represents the - definitive Cajal - to be used by scientists and scholars interested in the original writings of probably the most prominent neuroscientist of all times.

... Pasik and Pasik's edition is greatly superior to the reprint of the French edition ... The book makes a wonderful gift to any neuroscientist, providing a sense of how we got where we are now. The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences 2/2002, Nr. 1
