Representing brains

Check out this online gallery of images taken of the human brain called "The Beautiful Mind." I found this link via Neuroanthropology who found it via Mind Hacks on the post The fire within. Not only are the images pretty stunning, but they are also fascinating because they give new insights into how the human brain looks--or at least how it looks via certain photographic processes. How do our conceptions of the brain change as brain imaging technologies change and improve?
