The cartoonist says: “This one is inspired by an article I was reading on “neuropsychoanalysis”.

“Anyway”, he says, “enough seriousness. We’re about the giggles here. So I reduced this well-written, highly intelligent article to the question “how would a brain look on the couch?” and there you go.”
