"Gee Wiz!" Facts About the Brain

It is tempting to think that the main principles of neural development will have been discovered by the end of the century and that the cellular and molecular basis of the mind will be the challenge for the next. An alternative view is that this feeling that understanding is just a few steps away is a recurring and necessary delusion that keeps scientists from dwelling on the extent of the complexity they face and how much more remains to be discovered.
