Caption: Senses within the brain. 16th-century woodcut of a man's head in profile, showing his brain, with various parts named, including memory, cognition, 'fantasia', 'sensus'. The nose, eye, ear, and tongue are labelled in Latin with lines leading to the front portion of the brain. Below the nose, in small letters, someone has written in ink, 'nolo me tange' (touch me not). This artwork is from 'Aepitoma omnis phylosophiae' (1504) by the German author Georg Reisch (c.1467-1525). This work is better known as 'Margarita philosophica' and was first published in 1503.
