Mind-brain link questioned

bloody_iv.jpgThe idea that the mind is the result of the function of the brain is so widely accepted within neuroscience as to almost be its defining statement. It’s suprising then when you find someone who’s arguing against this idea in a coherent and thoughtful manner.

The blog Science is a Method not a Position keeps tabs on the world of the cognitive and neurosciences and puts forward alternative interpretations that suggest there may be more to the mind than the firing of neurons.

Even if you don’t buy the main argument, the blog highlights how our simple assumptions aren’t always as watertight as we believe them to be.
