brain

 

The “mind-body problem” in philosophy examines the relationship between mind and matter, and in particular the relationship between consciousness and the brain. Which reminds me of a joke by comedian Emo Phillips:

“I used to think that the brain was the most wonderful organ in my body. Then I realized who was telling me this.”

Wikipepida has a pretty good summary of the topic:
