The Cajal Club is an organization of neuroscientists. The Club now meets every year at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. The goals of the Cajal Club are to 1) revere Cajal, 2) provide an opportunity for neuroscientists with special interests in the structure and function of the nervous system to confraternize, and 3) contribute to the welfare of neuroanatomy and neuroanatomists.
