That is a real understatement. AFAIK we have various theories and
models with various levels of supporting evidence, predictive ability
and so on. I am not aware that this qualifies as "we now how it's
implemented in humans". Please give some more sources, arguments and
so on to support this claim. I am aware of a few iterations of your
suggested reading lists. Do you have new additions? I must have
missed something.
