The pioneer of depicting nerve cells with a paintbrush
Today, let's enjoy some paintings of nerve cells, all by Santiago Ram ó n y Cajal. The Spanish pathologist, histologist and neurologist, a Nobel Prize winner in physiology or medicine in 1906, pioneered the study of the microstructure of the brain and is often referred to as the "father of modern neuroscience".
in addition to the research, Ramon Kakhar also has excellent painting skills. The nerve cells he depicts are still regarded as classic materials and beautiful science and art.
