First Edition of Vols. I â II of the Trabajos de Laboratorio de investigaciones biologicas de la Universidad de Madrid, containing the first printings of several of Ramon y Cajalâs key papers on the human cerebral cortex. Established in 1901 and funded by the Spanish government, the Trabajos was the successor to Ramon y Cajalâs Revista trimestral micrografica, the periodical he had founded in 1897 to publish his neurological researches and those of his pupils at the University of Madrid. Volume I of the Trabajos consists of six papers by Ramon y Cajal, four of whichââEstructura de la corteza olfativa del hombre y mamÃferos,â âTextura del lÃ³bulo olfativo accesorio,â âEstructura del septum lucidum,â and âSobre un ganglio especial de la corteza esfeno-occipitalââwere translated into English and published together as Studies on the Cerebral Cortex (Limbic Structures) (1955). Volume II contains an additional eight papers by Ramon y Cajal, together with four by other authors. These papers were some of the first fruits of Ramon y Cajalâs researches on the human cerebral cortex undertaken in 1879-1900, in which he used advanced staining techniques to â[describe] and [classify] the various types of neurons in such a way, he believed, as to permit the ascribing of specific structural patterns to different areas of the cortex; hence he was able to place the concept of cerebral localization on firm histological foundations. His descriptions of the cerebral cortex are still the most authoritativeâ (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Garrison-Morton.com 1428.1
