designinbiology: The First Neuron Drawings by Camillo Golgi The Scientist brought to you by GSS!

by Santiago Ramon y Cajal - In this diagram of the spinal cord, Cajal depicts both individual cells and entire nerve tracts--a view no imaging technology can match. In his sketch, motor commands travel down the spine from the left side of the brain, while sensory feedback travels up the spine to the right side of the brain.

theartfulgene:  The first illustration by Camillo Golgi showing a network of neurons found in the olfactory bulb of a dog. Golgi has invented a method, now called Golgi-stain, which is used to image neurons in different tissues. Golgi-stain is based on reaction between potassium dichromate and silver nitrate, which leads to silver chromate being deposited on cell membranes and giving them dark colour. Only random and relatively few neurons are stained at a time, allowing to distinguish…

Beautiful examples of cartographic information design are on display at Radical Cartography. Like the sample above, my favorite are the maps designed by Harold Fisk in 1944 for the Army Corps of Engineers, showing the historical traces of the Mississippi River.

The first drawings of neurons — The Golgi Stain: In 1837, Italian physician Camilo Golgi devised a reaction to stain the wispy dendrites and axons of neurons, making it possible to see brain cells in situ. Ramon y Cajal won the Nobel Prize using this stain

Olfactory Bulb, “this drawing of a dog’s olfactory bulb is one of many astonishing architectures revealed by a staining method that bears his name. Its application to the study of nervous tissue marks the beginning of modern neuroscience.

Drawing of Purkinje cells (A) and granule cells (B) from pigeon cerebellum by Santiago Ramón y Cajal, 1899

BEAUTY OF THE BRAIN  Anatomist Santiago Ramon y Cajal was the first to see--and illustrate--what neurons really do.

BEAUTY OF THE BRAIN Anatomist Santiago Ramon y Cajal was the first to see--and illustrate--what neurons really do. His exquisitely detailed drawings changed our understanding of the brain and nervous system.

Ramon Y. Cajal was a pioneer in neuroscience as well as a fantastic artist. Using the Golgi staining method he was able to isolate and categorized different neurons in brain tissue.
