This book is a reprint of an English translation of Cajal's original work, with abundant notes and commentaries by the editor. Cajal's fundamental contributions to neuroscience continue to be important today and this account accurately details his ideas and data. It also provides readers with the opportunity to learn what he 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.

Review quote

'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 speciality.'
Edwin Clarke, Medical History, 1992, 36 (4)
