comment What subjects to study in order to prepare for a research career in theoretical neuroscience?
My undergraduate was in physics, so I took all the standard physics courses. During my Master's degree, I took a lot of classic neuroscience courses and a Nonlinear Dynamics course through the physics department. For my PhD, I am taking Mathematical Cellular Biology, Perturbation Theory, Asymptotic Analysis, and Numerical Methods in Partial Differential Equations. I've also taken a neuroscience course where we discuss, report, and present on the current literature in neuroscience.

comment When was it recognized that thinking occurs in the brain and not in the heart?
Yes, the misconception existed. Egyptians demonstrate ignorance of the brain. It was one of the organs they didn't preserve; they didn't think it would be useful in the afterlife. The reason the heart got so much attention (and blood) is that you can see veins going through the whole body with your eyes and you can see they all connect to the heart. You can't see nerves going through the whole body so easily.
