This chapter first focuses on Alain Prochiantz, professor at the École Normale Supérieure, and his lab’s efforts to think about the adult human brain in embryogenetic terms. It then covers the emergence of (cellular) cerebral pathology from 1820s to 1870s; Ramón y Cajal’s large-scale study of the cellular emergence of the brain in its entirety beginning in the early 1890s; the emergence of new concepts of plasticity and pathology in the mid-1960s; studies on the relevance of adult neurogenesis for rethinking the diseases of the brain, specifically depression; and the rise of adult neurogenesis research, arguably the fastest growing branch of neuroscience between 2000 and 2010.

Keywords:   human brain, cerebral pathology, neuroplasticity, brain research, neurogenesis, Alain Prochiantz, Ramón y Cajal
