To help them in their resistance, there were already a number of influential elite members of the neurological community, who, for various reasons, felt that their toes had been stepped on by Vogt. Most prominent among them was Paul Flechsig, who could not forgive Vogt for questioning his findings and integrity. Another opponent of Vogt at the Berlin University, was the anatomist Wilhelm von Waldeyer, who felt that Vogt might be invading his turf. A. Krupp found that it would be desirable to incorporate the Center into the Friedrich-Wilhelm University.

For this reason Vogt called these cells "association neurons", and he believed that they must be involved in the imaginative, rational and quick thinking of an individual. Through Litvinoff, Vogt informed the Kremlin about his findings and the news was received with satisfaction. The Politbureau was waiting now for an official testimony coming from the famous German brain researcher, confirming by scientific study of the brain the outstanding qualities of the mind of their leader. This took place on November 10th , 1929 in the Pantheon Hall of the Moscow Brain Research Institute, officially named in 1928 "Institut Mozga" (Brain Institute), in the presence of high dignitaries from the Kremlin.

Indeed, in the author's opinion, the survival of the Vogts through the Nazi time would have been unlikely without Gustav Krupp's protection. He was able to provide it, since he felt he could disregard Hitler, who could not afford to dismiss Krupp in the midst of the military situation he had brought onto Germany. A. death, the hostility of the academic establishment against Oskar Vogt, whom they considered as an arrogant upstart without any proper credentials, had remained undiminished. It was best exemplified in regard to the Vogts' participation in the "Brain Commission" established in 1903 in London.
