Quote of the Week – James

“The fluctuations of the blood-supply to the brain were independent of respiratory changes, and followed the quickening of mental activity almost immediately. We must suppose a very delicate adjustment whereby the circulation follows the needs of cerebral activity. Blood very likely may rush to each region of the cortex according as it is most active, but of this we know nothing.” – William James, Principles of Psychology, 1890
