    thenearsightedmonkey: medicalschool: Pyramidal Neuron, drawn by Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852-1934) “For example, in 2005, neuroscientists discovered that an epilepsy patient had one neuron cell that fired whenever a photo of Jennifer Aniston was presented. Various photos showing the blonde actress in different poses and from different angles all elicited a response from the same concept cell, a neuron in the hippocampus. “Concept cells were also found in different regions of the medial temporal lobe,” Roy said. “For example, a ‘James Brolin cell’ was found in the right hippocampus, a ‘Venus Williams cell’ was in the left hippocampus, a ‘Marilyn Monroe cell’ was in the left parahippocampal  cortex and a ‘Michael Jackson cell’ was in the right amygdala.” Except from: Do brain cells need to be connected to have meaning?December 4, 2012 by Lisa Zyga in Neuroscience

Santiago Ramón y Cajal (1852–1934) is widely regarded as the father of modern neuroscience. He jointly won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1906 with his rival Camillo Golgi (1843–1926), for their contribution to the understanding of the structure of the nervous system.
