How are we we ?. The influence of the Body on Behavior. The Phinneus P. Gage Story
The Phinneus P. Gage Story
How can we scientifically answer that question?
So, because Gage’s “mind” had changed AND his brain had changed…people started to investigate the connection between the 2.
- 1.) The Cell Body: is the main, or center part of the neuron. It contains the nucleus and produces the energy needed to fuel neuron activity.
- 2.) The Axon: a tail like structure that carries information away from the cell body.
- 3.) The Dendrites: are usually small, short thin fibers that stick out from the cell body. They receive impulses, or messages, from other neurons and send them to the cell body.
Dendrite – The branching extensions of a neuron that receive information and conduct impulses toward the cell body
Axon – The extension of a neuron through which neural impulses are sent
Axon terminals – The endpoint of a neuron where neurotransmitters are stored
Let’s form a line
The communication between neurons occurs in special PATHWAYS in different areas of the brain.
These different PATHWAYS create different sensations/feelings/thoughts due to the regions in the brain they occur in

What is the effect of a placebo on the brain? What does that mean regarding the mind/ brain connection?
CAT scans and MRI scans examine structure of the brain.
To examine the function of the brain, we use other devices.
