And people are fascinated by this wrinkly three-pound piece of flesh inside their heads that mediates all that we do. Traditionally associated with reason and intellect, it has long been part of our everyday parlance: we rack our brains, arrange brainstorms or brain dumps, take part in mind wandering, have our “minds blown”, and when eating cold things, some of us even experience “brain freeze”. There’s no doubt that we are in thrall to the brain, and that’s no surprise – it makes us who we are, enabling us to think and feel.
