If our brains are just for memory, then who does the thinking???

"Life is change, and the brain is a device for recording changes - for forming memories through learning. Learning and memory, as we've seen, fill in the details of who we are as we become a unique person. But what is the nature of the neural changes that constitute learning and memory? Most neuroscientists today believe that Alterations in synaptic connectivity underlie learning, and that memory is the stabilization and maintenance of these changes over time. How, then, does experience actually change synapses, and what makes the changes last?"

Synaptic Self, p134
