mind is a term usually used to refer to the functions of the
the ability to perceive, have emotions, store and access memories,
and display intelligence and will. Historically, there has
been contentious debate about whether mind arises wholly from
brain, or whether some functions (such as consciousness or
free will) are not reducible to brain activity.
