and the Cajal Club are also pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016 JCN/Wiley Sanford L. Palay Award in strctural neuroscience.
This year we recognize the outstanding contributions of Dr. Floyd

The Cajal Club is very grateful

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 sponsors:
· A major social event and dinner at the annual Society for Neuroscience
· 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
