Wilhelm His was perhaps the preeminent contributor to research on the histogenesis of the central and peripheral nervous systems in the 19th century. Among His’ discoveries were that changes in the shape of cells were involved in the folding of tissues such as the neural plate. In addition, His discovered the neural crest and the origin of the peripheral nervous system, and demonstrated that cranial and spinal ganglia are formed by cells that migrate from the neural crest (Jacobson, 1991). Moreover, His found that nerve cells originate by mitosis of stem cells near the ventricle of the neural tube rather than in the cerebral cortex itself (Jacobson, 1991).
