The Neuron and Lucifer… and Cajal / La Neurona y Lucifer… y Cajal

Where did Neuron in Yellow got her color from?

Cajal was a mediical illistrator.

He drew neurons.

The neurons were hard to find and to see. He understood that a trained eye only could understand the microscpy image.

So how could anyone in the world see the marvelous world he was discovering?

Drawing was the answer. The problem was: Many people didn’t believed that the drawings were faithful to the original picture.

Anyhow, the drawings were beautiiful and he knew they showed the true nature of this cells.

In his quest to stain the living neurons he discovered by accident the “Lucifer Yellow”.

He followed a white neuron with a blue cell membrane to the deepest cave. There he saw an epic fight: The neuron in white was battling with Lucifer.

The neuron was defeated and fell to a boiling Yellow… Yet the neuron scaped and survived.

She was now in yellow.

Cajal then drew her….

┬┐D├│nde obtuvo su color la Neurona Amarilla?

Cajal era un ilistrador m├ędico.

Dibujaba neuronas.

Las neuronas eran dif├şciles de encontrar y de ver. Comprendi├│ que solamente un ojo entrenado pod├şa entender la imagen del microscopio.

Entonces, ┬┐C├│mo todos en el mundo pod├şan ver el maravilloso mundo que estaba descubriendo?

Dibujar fue la respuesta. El problema era: muchas personas no cre├şan que los dibujos fueran fieles a la imagen original. De todos modos, los dibujos eran hermosos y ├ęl sab├şa que los dibujos mostraban la verdadera naturaleza de estas c├ęlulas.

En su b├║squeda para te├▒ir las neuronas vivas y poder mostrarlas m├ís n├ştidas, descubri├│ por accidente el “Amarillo Lucifer”.

Sigui├│ una neurona blanca con una membrana celular azul hasta la cueva m├ís profunda. Vio una lucha ├ępica: la neurona en blanco luchaba contra Lucifer.

La neurona fue derrotada y cay├│ a un hirviente amarillo … Sin embargo, la neurona se escap├│ y sobrevivi├│.

Ella estaba ahora en amarillo.

Entonces Cajal la dibuj├│…
