The brain--any brain--is the most complicated object in the universe. The attempt to understand it has been one of science's greatest challenges. Cobb shows why: in spite of the matchless complexity of the brain, scientists can't help but try to find something to compare it to. Cobb shows how each new technology has given scientists a new idea of what the brain is.
