How the Mind Works
« on: March 04, 2019, 01:44:30 am »
The human brain is one of the most complex systems in existence. Even the top brain scientists in the world admit that there?s still much about it that we don?t understand. Despite all that we don?t know, however, there is a great deal that researchers have uncovered in the last 20 or 30 years that has had a profound influence on how we view and treat mental illness.

A Quick Brain Primer

In addition to processing thoughts and emotion, the brain is responsible for every sensation we feel, as well as the basic functioning of our bodies. What are called lower-order brain functions regulate breathing and the beating of the heart. The brain also controls movement and other bodily functions. The brain regulates body temperature, when and how much we sleep, and even the immune system to some degree.

Really impressive. I remember a book named with the title "how the mind works" which was published in late 90's by Steven Pinker. This synthesizes the most satisfying explanations of our mental life from cognitive science.
