The Brain is the Foundation of the Mind
Intelligence arises as the brain reasons, plans, and solves problems.
The brain makes sense of the world by using all available information, including senses, emotions, instincts, and remembered experiences.
Emotions are based on value judgments made by our brains and are manifested by feelings as basic as love and anger and as complex as empathy and hate.
The brain learns from experiences and makes predictions about best actions in response to present and future challenges.
Consciousness depends on normal activity of the brain
The brain makes it possible to communicate knowledge through language.
The human brain endows us with a natural curiosity to understand how the world works.
The nervous system can be studied at many levels, from complex behaviours such as speech or learning, to the interactions among individual molecules.
Research can ultimately inform us about mind, intelligence, imagination, and consciousness.
Curiosity leads us to unexpected but surprising discoveries that can benefit humanity.
