The human brain has no new parts
A note for Lesson no. 1, "You Have One Brain (Not Three)," in Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context from page 22 is:
...the human brain has no new parts. The neurons in your brain can be found in the brains of other mammals and, likely, other vertebrates.
As a neuroscientist, I am persuaded by the evidence that supports Finlay’s hypothesis of a common brain-manufacturing plan.
