Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. It might be said that the need for a visible image of the mind is actually met by nature in the method of function of the nervous system.—Hoffding, Psychology, p. 50. The modern study of the functions of the mind has shown beyond all question that these are dependent upon the functions of the body, especially of the nervous system.—Metchnikoff, Nature of Man, p. 159.

This statement will help us to think of the relation of the two organs to each other, although it is not strictly accurate.
