Archives of Santiago Ramón y Cajal and the Spanish Neurohistological School.

The Archives of Santiago Ramón y Cajal and the Spanish Neurohistological School contain documents of Ramón y Cajal (1852-1934), a Spanish scientist who received the Nobel Prize (1906) in recognition of work on the structure of the nervous system. His discovery that neurons are individual, separate cells and their inter-relationship to propagate nerve impulses, the `Neuron Doctrine´, is the basis of neuroscience. The archives are essential to the study of the history, discoveries and theories of the present comprehension of the human brain in its double aspect, anatomical composition (individual cells) and physiological properties (formation of circuits and nerve impulse propagation).
