His father practically forced the two brothers to study medicine. Thanks to that, Santiago was able to combine his artistic talent with histology and wonderfully describe cerebral architecture. Pedro was a faithful brother and above all a friend of Santiago, and they worked together for years. Pedro was able to demonstrate the theories of his brother in nonmammalian amniotes, concluding that the basic elements of the nervous system are common to these animals and he provided images that served Santiago to formulate the theory of dynamic polarization. Pedro, who decided to remain in the shadow of his brother, was a very complete doctor, pathologist and gynecologist, who made interesting contributions in all these fields and above all was a great humanist who left an important personal and scientific legacy.

<![CDATA[Psychiatry in Shetland]]> https://www.researchpad.co/article/5b5b2eec463d7e186098e4b5

The Shetland Isles are a place of breathtaking landscapes and pristine wildlife. As harsh as the weather can be, so warm and welcoming are the people and their proud half-Scottish, half-Scandinavian culture. Practising psychiatry in this northernmost outpost of the UK involves significant challenges. The authors were the only two psychiatrists based on this remote island group, which is home to 23 000 people.

<![CDATA[The importance of greenspace for mental health]]> https://www.researchpad.co/article/5b44ebdc463d7e42df85190f

There is an urgent global need for accessible and cost-effective pro-mental health infrastructure. Public green spaces were officially designated in the 19th century, informed by a belief that they might provide health benefits. We outline modern research evidence that greenspace can play a pivotal role in population-level mental health.
