Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This year marks the 90th anniversary of Ramón y Cajal’s passing. We wish to honour the father of neuroscience with this Special Issue.

Perfectioning Golgi’s staining, Cajal precisely depicted the architecture of neuronal connections, combining his talent for drawing and his devotion to histology. After sharing the Nobel Prize with Camillo Golgi in 1906, Cajal shed light on the contiguous nature of neurons, which he called “the mysterious butterflies of the soul”. He succeeded in tracing, for the first time, the propagation of the nerve impulse through dynamic polarization, advancing brain function research. Beyond his invaluable scientific contributions, which made him a pioneer of modern neuroscience, Cajal merits to be remembered for his fervent enthusiasm, restless work and unconditioned devotion to research. He provided us with powerful tools to explore neuronal connections, inspiring further research.

In order to celebrate Cajal, we invite scholars to contribute original research articles,  reviews and perspectives related to neurobiology achievements, but also to innovative laboratory techniques, fundamental and translational research, therapeutic targets, and strategies for understanding the complexities of healthy and damaged nervous systems.

Dr. Maria A. Bonifacio
Guest Editor
