“The mind moves matter” – Virgil, Aeneid, book 6, line 727

by metacognizant

Neuroscientist Mario Beauregard has published an excellent paper in the journal, Progress in Neurobiology. This paper, titled, “Mind does really matter: Evidence from neuroimaging studies of emotional self-regulation, psychotherapy, and placebo effect” presents findings from a wide variety of studies that all support the same thesis: mind is distinct from the brain, and mind has a causal power over the brain.

An excellent read for any student of neuroscience; the conclusion is worth skipping to for those who struggle with neuroscientific terminology.
