DUQUE PARRA, Jorge Eduardo; BARCO RIOS, John e PELAEZ CORTES, Félix John César. Santiago Felipe Ramón y Cajal, ¿Neuroscience Father or Pioneer of Neural Science?. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.4, pp. 1202-1206. ISSN 0717-9502. doi: 10.4067/S0717-95022011000400022.
The present work on Santiago Ramón y Cajal aims to demonstrate on the basis of neuroscientist literature, that Santiago Ramón y Cajal was not the father or founder of Neuroscience, but is considered a neural science pioneer. In order to corroborate this statement, varied information on Ramón y Cajal was consulted within Neuroscience to determine if Ramón Y Cajal is one of the Neuroscience pioneers, and contrast that information with the beginnings of neuroscience as a discipline. Subsequently this information was compared with various aspects of other important figures who were not named Neuroscience founders. In conclusion Santiago Felipe Ramón and Cajal if not the father of Neuroscience, though it should be noted he is considered one of the pioneers of neural science.
