A note for Lesson no. 2, "Your Brain Is a Network," in Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context from page 42 is:
This brain is like a collection of specialized tools that work together, so we’ll call it Pocketknife Brain.
This name was inspired by evolutionary psychologists Leda Cosmides and John Tooby, who described a human mind as like a Swiss Army knife.
