Are the mind and the brain the same?

The mind had said to be the entirety of who we are.

whereas our brain is but a accumulation of neurons and electrical activity.

But are they one in the same?

I appreciate every response to this and hope this question is to your taste.

:)

As by its denotations, yes; as by its connotations, no.

Side: Yes, they are.

I choose the other side since i feel more strongly that it's not, but i agree with exactly what you said.

The saying a mind is a terrible thing to waste means the potential of the brain, not the brain itself, and that's why I fall more towards the negative on this one.

Side: No, they are not.

Your cognitive state is largely enabled by your brain and nervous system, but both are beyond our full comprehension at this point in time.

Side: Yes, they are.

A person's thoughts are just neurons interacting with each other... so ya your mind is your brain.

Side: Yes, they are.

In my opinion, they are both the same. The mind integrates with the brain.

Side: Yes, they are.

The mind is a part of the brain, but they are not the same, because a mind cannot survive if the brain is dead, but the brain could continue to exist even without the mind.

Side: No, they are not.

When someone says, "I've changed my mind", they are not saying, "I've changed my brain".

A brain removed from a head is still a brain. Removing someone's mind is removing their consciousness. For example, when we die, our mind disappears, but our brain remains... Until it decomposes.

Side: No, they are not.

The mind is not the brain. The brain is a physical object which can be photographed while the mind can not.

Side: No, they are not.

Minds and brains are different. A mind is like apart of your personality. The brain is like memory card it only keeps what you have learned inside.

Side: No, they are not.
