Caption: Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852-1934), Spanish pathologist, histologist and neuroscientist. Montage of images of the life and work of Ramon y Cajal, who is considered the father of modern neuroscience. He was skilled at drawing, and hundreds of his illustrations of brain cells are still used for educational purposes today. His early work focused on the pathology of inflammation, the microbiology of cholera, and the structure of epithelial cells and tissues. He then turned his attention to the central nervous system. He discovered the axonal growth cone, and provided the definitive evidence for what would later be known as neuron theory. He discovered a new type of cell, which was named after him: the interstitial cell of Cajal (ICC). This is not neural or glial, but a cell that is something in between, vitally mediating neurotransmission from nerves to bowel smooth muscle cells. Ramon y Cajal was awarded the 1906 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.
