Thw human brain has always been that black box which contains all our secrets. Scientists have being trying hard to demystify its intricacies and explain its fomula but so far only little has been achieved. It is true the brian is what makes a person sad, happy, mad, but when it stops working reasoning stops too. There are meticulous connections between Nrian, mind, reason, and psychology. To understand one you need to know the other.
