A beautifully illustrated and inspiring MIT Kids picture book biography of Santiago Ramón y Cajal, an incredible artist and the Father of Neuroscience.
Santiago always loved drawing. With chalk or charcoal, he could create bullfights on walls, and sail ships across doorways. But his father wanted Santiago to be a doctor, not an artist, so Santiago had to paint in secret. Until, one night, he and his father slipped into an abandoned graveyard to look for skeletons, and Santiago realised that the human body was a work of art too. Inspired, Santiago trained as a doctor and, with his artistic eye, he discovered the secrets of the nervous system, becoming the Father of Neuroscience.
This stunning picture book from scientist Christine Iverson, imaginatively illustrated by Spanish artist Luciano Lozano, cleverly incorporates Santiago's own drawings, to bring to life his fascinating and inspiring story. With end matter including scientific notes, reference material and a detailed biography of Santiago, this STEAM title proves that art and science really do create wonders together.
