I love brain research and brain science enough to accept that what we know now is, pretty much, nothing. There is very little information value in what’s being published. That’s normal and understandable.
We don’t even have the basic physiological descriptive work done to even start with decent theory building — let alone theory testing.
We do seem to have the start of decent descriptive work on something like addiction — and that alone is remarkable.
We’re in for a lot of very basic, grinding bench science for a long, long time. We should probably start thinking in terms of Voyager-project timescales! 30-40-50 years?
