The Google Doodle today features Wilder Penfield.  Dr. Penfield was a revelotionary neurosurgeon.  He was the first to map out the different functions of the brain.  The Cortical Homunculus in particular.  This helped people understand that different parts of the brain were responsible for different motor or sensory functions.

Hence the smell of the burning toast…
