…the formal minuet of cerebellar Purkinje cells, the stately files of neocortical pyramids with their cathedral‐like dendritic arches, the overlapping swirls of inferior olive cells, or the town and country spotting of cell villages throughout the brainstem core… (A.

He was one of the original researchers in the field of neuroscience, having contributed to the foundational Boulder conferences in Colorado (Scheibel, ; Scheibel & Scheibel, ). He also served as Acting Director (1987–1990) and Director (1990–1995) of the UCLA Brain Research Institute, ensuring its survival in the face of considerable economic turmoil.
