Programs of the Brain
   

"Information in a living system is a feature of the order and arrangement of its parts, which arrangement provides the signs that constitute a ‘code’ ‘language’. The essential feature is that when the signs of the codes are transmitted along suitable channels they provide the control that helps MAINTAIN THE ORDER OF LIFE. So to understand the language of the BRAIN we must learn to recognize and interpret the elements of the script and the meaning of the signs in which it is written. Neuroscience is beginning to do this. In this book I hope to show how the organization of the brain can be considered as the written script of the programs of our lives. So the important feature of the brain is not the material that they are made of but the information that they carry." J. Z. YOUNG, Programs of the Brain Oxford, 1978.

Another Point of View:
Richard Bergland sees the brain as a gland whose activities are controlled by hormones. Furthermore hormones in the brain communicate with other hormones in different areas of the body. Thus it could be said that some thinking goes on outside the brain. See his book THE FABRIC OF MIND. > Visit Art with Brain in Mind >>forum.
