"Shaped a little like a loaf of French country bread, our brain is a crowded chemistry lab, bustling with nonstop neural conversations. Imagine the brain, that shiny mound of being, that mouse-gray parliament of cells, that dream factory, that petit tyrant inside a ball of bone, that huddle of neurons calling all the plays, that little everywhere, that fickle pleasuredome, that wrinkled wardrobe of selves stuffed into the skull like too many clothes into a gym bag"
~ Diane Ackerman (from An Alchemy of Mind. The Marvel and Mystery of the Brain, 2004) 
"The history of our quest to understand the brain is certainly as long as human history itself." ~ THE SECRET LIFE OF THE BRAIN - PBS.ORG (2002).
