When a reporter asked the famous biologist J.B.S.Haldane what his biological studies had taught him about God, Haldine replied, "The creator, if he exists,must have an inordinate fondness for beetles," since there are more species of beetle than any other group of living creatures. By the same token, a neurologist might conclude that God is a cartographer.He must have an inordinate fondness foe maps, for everywhere you look in the brain maps abound.

The Body has a Mind of Its Own by Sandra Blakeslee and Matthew Blakeslee is full of interesting facts about our body maps.
