During the early 20th century, a neurobiological research school combining diverse scientific approaches (basic neurohistology, anatomical pathology, neurology, and psychiatry) emerged around the figure of Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852–1934). In the 1920s, a new building was erected and it was to become the major Spanish neurobiological research center. It was an oversized project that, unfortunately, did not facilitate the definitive consolidation of a Spanish neurohistological school. Later, the Civil War and the early years of Franco’s dictatorship brought about the slow decline of this research group. Anat Rec, 00:000–000, 2019. © 2019 American Association for Anatomy.
