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.

"Ramon Y. Cajal must be regarded as the greatest neurohistologist and it is welcome news that this classic work has been reissued. . . . he conveys to the page, the picture he sees, with an unsurpassed vitality and clarity. Cajal's illustrations are superb. . . . essential reading . . highly relevant." --Brain "They have produced one of the very best types of modern reprints. The text is untouched, but 160 pages have been added. It is to be hoped that this book will induce future editors of reprints to include similar enrichments. In the meantime it will be of value to the modern neuroscientist as well as to the historian of this specialty." --Medical History Reviewed in Isis
