Why dissecting the brain only gives us half its story - The Guardian


The Guardian
In neurobiology, historically, researchers relied on slicing up the brain to understand more about its structure. But 'murdering to dissect' hasn't always given us the best picture. When Renaissance physicians examined the cerebrospinal fluid in the ...
