Change your mind…change you!

Is your mind the same thing as your brain? Well, your brain is an organ; your mind isn’t. Which sounds crazy, but there you have it. To which neuroscientists reply, why are you relying on such a distinction? What else is behavior but the result of brain biology? Yet the fact that criminals are treated [...]
