A remarkable synthesis.

Prof. Nikos Logothetis has estimated that every day, eight scientific papers are published reporting on studies using functional magnetic resonance imaging. My guess is that this year will not see one with a more remarkable title than "The default-mode, ego-functions and free-energy: a neurobiological account of Freudian ideas" by R. L. Carhart-Harris and K. J. Friston, which appears in the current issue of the journal Brain.
