Hello Im new here and I'm learning more about neuroscience but somethings i've had questions for haven't exactly found the answer to and these questions have to do with the mind. What exactly makes up the "mind" ? What cause intrusive thoughts ? What causes random thoughts ? Are thoughts stored ? And since what makes you you is in the cerebral cortex what would happen if your was removed and someone else was put in would you have their thoughts of thoughts are stored. Also when the cerebral cortex is damaged whats more important the damage to the cortex or the actual physical parts such as the lobes ?
