Do we Know How the Brain Works?

Have had  conversations of late with people who have said:  Look at neural nets they are modeled after brains.    But the answer is still, no we don't.  And we are still not close.   Artificial neural models are very different even from the way we think we know how biological neurons work.    Not to say the artificial models are not useful,  but its not what your brain actual does.  How much closer are we getting?  See the Neuralink approach, mentioned below, to understand the challenges.  Will we know?  I am always optimistic.

Will It Ever Be Possible to Understand the Human Brain?
Despite technical breakthroughs like Elon Musk’s Neuralink, scientists still have no reliable model of how the brain actually works
