In the Renaissance, while Vesalius was exploring the human form, the most popular representations of the brain and its functions consisted of diagrams depicting a variable number of intercommunicating ventricular chambers. This ventricular theory, as it is now known, was the direct result of brain dissections originally undertaken by classical physicians. We can consider this representation of the brain functioning as a precursor of current connectome maps.
