Yes, it most likely is.
The reason that neuroes don’t like to commit themselves is that they are afraid of clear and simple explanations for fear of “dumbing down” their profession and being made to look fools by their peer group.
Some seem to have forgotten that part of the Hippocratic Oath that goes:
“I will remember that there is an art to medicine as well a science, and that warmth, sympathy and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug”.
You can insert ‘MRI scanner’ as well if you like.
Personally, I really like analogies like the one Paolo uses. I think of my brain as a central processing unit and the five senses as the peripherals. Eyes are the scanner, the mouth is the printer or speakers (guffaw), the keyboard is the sense of touch(obviously). I haven’t found a simile for my bladder though. Recycle bin?
