Two doctors struggled first against scientific barriers & ultimately against each other to discover what brain cells looked like & how they managed to contact one another. From understanding Parkinsonís disease to enabling the development of neurosurgery, from exploring the mechanics of memory to treating depression, modern neuroscience is indebted to the man who correctly interpreted the elusive anatomy of the neuron. The combination of artistic vision, determination, & rare scientific genius enabled one anatomist to discover the synapse through the window of his imagination.
