I have noticed this overhead instrument panel. It is convered by a transparent plastic lid with a small hole in the middle. Inside it has lot of switches. What is it supposed to do and who operates the same?
I couldn't find an exact picture, but the below image highlights the area where the panel is:

That panel you saw is the
forward cabin circuit breaker panel. There is also an aft one.
It is used by maintenance personnel and cabin crew. For example if a toilet becomes inoperative, pulling the 'vacuum sys C/B' for 30 seconds might solve the issue.
