Caption: Delphi was the most important religious and spiritual center of ancient Greece. It was the home of the oracle of the god of light, Apollo. People came from all corners of the then-known world to seek the oracle's wise prophecy. In May 2002, developmental neurobiologists came there to discuss the changing concepts of cortical development. From the journal Cerebral Cortex
