What part of the brain is referred to as the mind?

Asked by Arudhra Ravindran 8th February 2012, 4:57 PM
Answered by Expert
During earlier days, the mind was thought to be separate from the brain. However, after early scientists conducted experiments it was determined that the mind was a component of a functioning brain that expressed certain behaviours based on the external environment and the development of the organism.
The totality of the conscious and unconscious functionality of the brain and central nervous system is called the mind. The mind is not a physical entity. The mind is the awareness of consciousness and the manifestations of thought, perception, emotion, determination, memory, and imagination that takes place within the brain. The mind is a storehouse of information. Some of this information is learned and some of it is carried as part of our genetic constitution. Our senses provide input that is analyzed, interpreted, and stored in our mind.
