Connections 20061. Body and Mind

This connection seeks to explore the relationship between mental life and the physical body. Often this relationship between the two is misunderstood, or, even worse, taken for granted. This is a complex issue, and the goal is to inspire some thought about (1) how the mind arises from the physical body, (2) how the function of the brain gives rise to the structure of thought, and (3) how damage to the brain can selectively affect cognitive abilities.
