"unframed states" and "irreducible subjectivity"

From a discussion in neural and behavioral sciences senior seminar on brain imaging:

"Perhaps ... what we'll learn though is that there always remains an uncalibrateable and non-generalizable individual distinctiveness, and that this is part of the essence of brain function?

The problem ... [is] that people might assert that we are things different from and simpler than what we actually are.  That's a problem that long predates imaging.  Maybe its a problem that good brain research, including imaging, might actually help to solve?"
