Map of the brain (new edition)

Time magazine has published a new map of the brain. As 21st century science and technology open the brain to us as never before, accepted truths are becoming less true.

Trying to map the brain has always been cartography for fools. Most of the other parts of the body reveal their workings with little more than a glance. The heart is self-evidently a pump; the lungs are clearly bellows. But the brain, which does more than any organ, reveals least of all.
