Product Description

Based on a true story, Santiago Ramn y Cajal is every child who has struggled to navigate the expectations of adults. As a young boy, all Santiago wanted to do was be an artist. But his father wanted him to become a doctor, insisting that pursuing art was not a true profession.

Although Santiago was forbidden by his parents to make art, Santiago secretly kept at it-making homemade paints and brushes and honing his craftsmanship. After years of locking horns with his father, Santiago was sent to medical school. As a medical student he discovered the wonders of how animal bodies work, and his studies eventually led him to the microscopic mysteries of the brain.

Using the artistic skills he honed as a child, Santiago painted brain cells to unlock their secrets. His pursuit of art had trained him to be observant, persistent, resourceful, and creative in his research.

In 1906, he won the Nobel Prize for medicine and is considered the father of modern neuroscience.
