At the crossroads of art and science, Beautiful Brain presents Nobel Laureate Santiago Ramón y Cajal’s contributions to neuroscience through his groundbreaking artistic brain imagery. Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852–1934) was the father of modern neuroscience and an exceptional artist. He devoted his life to the anatomy of the brain, the body’s most complex and mysterious organ. His superhuman feats of visualization, based on fanatically precise techniques and countless hours at the microscope, resulted in some of the most remarkable illustrations in the history of science. Beautiful Brain presents a selection of his exquisite drawings of brain cells, brain regions, and neural circuits with accessible descriptive commentary. These drawings are explored from multiple perspectives: Larry W. Swanson describes Cajal’s contributions to neuroscience; Lyndel King and Eric Himmel explore his artistic roots and achievement; Eric A. Newman provides commentary on the drawings; and Janet M. Dubinsky describes contemporary neuroscience imaging techniques. This book is the companion to a traveling exhibition opening at the Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis in February 2017, marking the first time that many of these works, which are housed at the Instituto Cajal in Madrid, have been seen outside of Spain. Beautiful Brain showcases Cajal’s contributions to neuroscience, explores his artistic roots and achievement, and looks at his work in relation to contemporary neuroscience imaging, appealing to general readers and professionals alike.

This book, together with the next two volumes to follow, offers the scientific community the works and thoughts of Santiago Ramón y Cajal. The text is a faithful rendition of the original Spanish version, with additional facts taken from the French translation. Both of these are currently quoted an average of 200 times a year in the scientific literature. This collection will represent the "definitive Cajal" for scientists and scholars interested in the original thoughts of probably the most prominent neuroscientist of all time.

Segunda edición de la biografía de Santiago Ramón y Cajal (Petilla de Aragón 1852-Madrid 1934), que ha sido sin lugar a dudas el mayor prestigio científico de España. Fue director de Museos Anatómicos de la Universidad de Zaragoza (1879) y más tarde catedrático de Anatomía de la de Valencia (1883), donde destacó en la lucha contra la epidemia de cólera que azotó la ciudad en 1885. Ocupó las cátedras de Histología en la Universidad de Barcelona (1887) y de Histología y Anatomía Patológica en la de Madrid (1892). Su fama mundial, acrecentada a partir de su asistencia a un congreso en Berlín, se vio refrendada con la concesión, en 1906, del Premio Nobel de Fisiología y Medicina por sus descubrimientos acerca de la estructura del sistema nervioso y el papel de la neurona. Sus hallazgos son la piedra angular de las ciencias neurológicas. La histología se divide en un antes y un después de Cajal. Hoy continúa siendo uno de los autores más citados en las revistas médicas existentes. Cajal es mucho más que un sabio histólogo: fue, ante todo, hombre de ciencia y, junto a Claude Bernard, el más grande que haya dado la medicina; ambos, sumados a Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Pasteur y Einstein, posiblemente sean los talentos científicos más grandes de todos los tiempos. Aparte de su labor en la medicina, Cajal desarrolló otros muchos saberes fruto de un intelecto y una sensibilidad sin parangón: fue fotógrafo, dibujante, literato. artes a las que se dedicó con su singularísimo esmero, tesón, afán y buen hacer.

The first English-language publication of the complete works of the great Spanish neurohistologist, Santiago Ramon y Cajal, on the cerebral cortex. "It is amazing to read Cajal so many years after the original publication and find that despite all the technical advances he is still fresh, readable, accurate, and valuable. To have the English translation done by two neuroscientists, one of whom is a native speaker of Spanish, is the best of possible worlds. Wehave had to wait a long time for this book, and many will feel that they must have it." --Dr. Pasko Rakic, Yale University School of Medicine

Santiago Ramón y Cajal was a mythic figure in science. Hailed as the father of modern anatomy and neurobiology, he was largely responsible for the modern conception of the brain. His groundbreaking works were New Ideas on the Structure of the Nervous System and Histology of the Nervous System in Man and Vertebrates. In addition to leaving a legacy of unparalleled scientific research, Cajal sought to educate the novice scientist about how science was done and how he thought it should be done. This recently rediscovered classic, first published in 1897, is an anecdotal guide for the perplexed new investigator as well as a refreshing resource for the old pro.Cajal was a pragmatist, aware of the pitfalls of being too idealistic -- and he had a sense of humor, particularly evident in his diagnoses of various stereotypes of eccentric scientists. The book covers everything from valuable personality traits for an investigator to social factors conducive to scientific work.

This book is a reprint of an English translation of Cajal's original work, with abundant notes and commentaries by the editor. This text describes Cajal's fundamental contributions to neuroscience, which continue to be important today. It accurately details Cajal's ideas and data, and provides readers with the opportunity to learn what Cajal thought about his research career and the significance of his observations. Excerpts from Tello's memorial lectures also provide a contemporary view of Cajal's work.

Cajal's Neuronal Forest: Science and Art continues the tradition set forth by its sister volume Cajal's Butterflies of the Soul (OUP, 2009). This new collection contains hundreds of beautiful rarely-seen-before figures produced throughout the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century by famed father-of-modern-neuroscience Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852-1934) and his contemporaries. Cajal was captivated by the beautiful shapes of the cells of the nervous system. He and his fellow scientists saw neurons as trees and glial cells as bushes. Given their high density and arrangement, neurons and glial resembled a thick forest, a seemingly impenetrable terrain of interacting cells mediating cognition and behavior. In unraveling the mysteries of the brain, these researchers encountered an almost infinite number of cellular forms with an extraordinary beauty, which they could not help but put pen to paper, allowing them to discover a new artistic world- the neuronal forest- that gave free rein not only to their imagination, but to a new way of viewing the brain as well. This book has been divided into two parts. The first focuses on the scientific atmosphere in Cajal's times, on the history of the neuron, and the anatomical challenge posed in studying neuronal connections. It also delves into the artistic skills of Cajal and other important pioneers in neuroscience and how the neuronal forests have served as an unlimited source of artistic inspiration. The second consists of 275 original drawings by Cajal. All were published over the course of his scientific career and cover virtually all of his research fields of interest, including the spinal cord, the optic lobe and retina, cerebral cortex, and many other regions of the brain. Cajal's Neuronal Forest: Science and Art is a testament to the natural beauty found in science. Despite the common misconception that the drawings of Cajal and other scientists of the time are pieces of art, these drawings are in fact copies of histological preparations and contributed greatly to the discoveries made in the field of neuroscience. This book is a gem in any library, whether serving as a medical history or a gallery of stunning sketches.
