Ramón y Cajal: Deconstructing a Legacy
“In this talk, we will learn about Santiago Ramón y Cajal's great contributions to Science and Medicine in the form of his neuron doctrine, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1906. We will also explore the person, mentor and writer behind the giant, the still-ongoing contentious fight surrounding his legacy, and the capriciousness of who gets to be remembered and how. Part historical thriller, part humanistic neuroscience didactic, and part journey of personal exploration, this fast-paced lecture will seek to offer clarity regarding Cajal's scientific work and pose questions surrounding the tension between the individual and the historical-political framework when trying to understand legacy, heritage and personal identity.”
