Caption: Senses within the brain. 16th-century artwork of the profile of a human head, depicting the location of sense within the brain. These include taste, smell, hearing and sight. The nose, tongue and brain are labelled in Latin. This woodcut is from 'Margarita philosophica' (1503). This work, by the German author Georg Reisch (c.1467-1525), was an encyclopedic compilation of knowledge that became one of the standard textbooks of the time. The topics in its twelve books included grammar, dialectics, rhetoric, arithmetic, music, geometry, astronomy, physics, natural history, physiology, psychology, and ethics.
