  1. I´m fascinated with those old illustrations, engravings or just drawings made with diverse techniques to depict our complex organ that you are showing us, because it makes me think about how the brain produces and allows us to contemplate art, and at the same time how we use that art to depict precisely the very brain in the midst of anatomy (medicine) and art. It is a wonderful recreation of the recursive loop of fascination with ourselves or, in other words, with our proper brains.

  2. Thanks Nuero, in addition to informative and educational writing, you also often do a fantastic job with the images. I have set this as the temporary desktop background for the next week or so. It was almost as good as the trepanning illustrations!!
