Consider this: the movements of the mind shape the brain, which in turn shapes the mind, which shapes bodily experience, which shapes thinking… However, no one knows how neural activity becomes conscious mental experience.

Mind Matters presents the Mind – a dry sounding, battling and rustling character – and the Body – a magnified image of a bouncy cell deep in the tissues of our insides – reacting to each other and outside influences.
