A Neuroscientist can be the smartest man (or woman) on earth in his understanding of the human mind. He may know all the neurochemical changes underlying an outrageous behavior of a person.

The virtue of self-control is a skill, which requires practice, regardless of all the neurobiological expertise in the world.
