This chapter presents an autobiography of Lawrence Kruger. Kruger characterized the distinctive ultrastructure of peripheral nociceptor terminals, he described the C-fiber thalamic “pain” projections, and he compared the representation of the “lemniscal” and “anterolateral” systems at the brain stem level. He also carried out broad studies of sensory mapping and comparative neurobiology. This work led to some of the early studies characterizing the fine structure of normal and reactive astrocytes and oligodendrocytes. His early years, career, and achievements are discussed.
