The Cajal Club was founded
in 1947 with three main goals in mind:
· To provide an opportunity for neuroscientists with special interests in the structure
and function of the nervous system to co-fraternize
· To contribute to the welfare of neuroanatomy (structural neuroscience) and neuroanatomists
To revere the founder
of modern neuroscience, Santiago Ramón y Cajal.
Toward these ends, the Cajal Club now
· A major social event and dinner at the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting
· Outstanding international
symposia (for example, Madrid, Stockholm, Querétaro, Pavia, Barcelona, Crete)
· The annual Krieg Cortical
Kudos Awards for senior, midlevel, and young researchers, with major cas prizes
· Krieg Lifetime Achievement awards, with a special medal (King Carlos I
of Spain and Constantino Sotelo, Pablo Rudomin, Anders Björklund, Ricardo Miledi, Rita Levi-Montalcini, Pasko Rakic,
Paul Allen, Tomas Hökfelt and Gordon Shepherd)
· The prestigious annual Pinckney J. Harman Memorial Lecture
