Brownian thought space

Cognitive science, mostly, but more a sometimes structured random walk about things.

Pierre Paul Broca

That's the man. And here's the article about Tan, on the superb Classic in the History of Psychology. Thanks Chris Green!

HI Mohinish! That's Alessio from his new home in Mandello (Lecco, Italy, guess). Note that Broca's is a braggart, more specifically, the first braggart in the history of neuroscience. He made the over-inference of function localisation on grounds of n=1 cases. Thirty years earlier Dax made the same inference on n=200 cases, but he was too prudent to publish it in a relevant journal.
