Abstract: In this book the biography is followed by a synopsis of scientists who followed in Alfonso Corti’s footsteps through the present, offered together with beautiful anatomic reproductions of Corti’s organ. Important followers were Nobel Prize winner Santiago Ramón y Cajal and Swedish anatomist Gustaf Retzius, nominated for the Nobel Prize nine times. Several others have provided new insights into the physiology, biochemistry, and especially, genetics involved in the coordinated development of this organ.
