Welcome

Brain and Bx explores the intersection of brain form and function and the philosophy of science. Current and emerging research in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, social psychology and art present the spectrum of  knowledge regarding how we know what we know, and the mysteries of the mind.

The Brain—is wider than the Sky—
For—put them side by side—
The one the other will contain
With ease—and You—beside—

The Brain is deeper than the sea—
For—hold them—Blue to Blue—
The one the other will absorb—
As Sponges—Buckets—do—

The Brain is just the weight of God—
For—Heft them—Pound for Pound—
And they will differ—if they do—
As Syllable from Sound—
