ResumenThe work of Cajal in the field of neuroscience in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries produced a dramatic change in the course of neuroscience history. Cajal did not make a single, unique great discovery, but rather he made numerous important contributions to our understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system. His observations regarding degeneration and regeneration, together with his ideas about the development and plasticity of the nervous system, not only had a deep influence on the scientists of his time, but they also constitute a virtually inexhaustible source of inspiration at present. This is in no small way due to Cajal’s correct interpretation of the microscopic images obtained first with Golgi’s ‘reazione nera’ (black reaction) impregnation technique, and later, with other methods that Cajal developed.
