This famous Rembrandt painting of a 17th century anatomy lesson (see below) represents to me the equivalent of what science currently knows about the functioning of the human brain.  The painting depicts a bunch of guys looking at the vivisection saying “Holy cow!  What’s that?!”… and that my friends is the equivalent of the 21st century magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain where the medical practitioners sit around looking at the MRI images saying “Holy cow! It looks like the cerebral cortex is lighting-up!”

We still have a lot to learn…
