 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 meeting

·     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
