Not getting anywhere? You may be missing the point completely

The mathematician David Marr, who pioneered the field of object recognition once said that one does not learn how birds fly by studying feathers but rather by studying aerodynamics.

That's why I'm a bit skeptic about neuroscience in general, where a lot of effort is invested in understanding how neurons work. But some seem to be getting this point.
